Corporate bits | Melco supports the first Macau Edinburgh Exchange tour

Melco Resorts and Entertainment Limited recently supported the first Macau Edinburgh Exchange Tour (MEET), enabling interaction between local Macau students and university students from Edinburgh as well as Cambodia.

According to a press release from Melco, local students from three middle schools under the guidance of the university students from Edinburgh and Cambodia, worked in groups to complete several interesting projects such as website development, human anatomy modelling and program coding writing. In the process of working on these projects, local students were able to put their organizational, communications and language skills to use.

The three-week program concluded last Friday with a graduation ceremony held at Warner Bros. Fun Zone, Studio City.

At the ceremony, acting deputy director of the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau (DESJ), Vicky Leong, stated, “The Macau government has always encouraged local youth to broaden their horizon and spend their long summer holiday wisely. Through MEET, students were able to get in touch with new concepts, and to learn to cooperate with those from a completely different cultural background. We are very glad that Melco offered support in several aspects of this program, which contributed to its success.”
