Chui visits Zhongshan to intensify cooperation

During his visit to Zhuhai and Zhongshan, Chief Executive Chui Sai On stated his belief that 2015 would be an important year to further intensify the collaboration with Zhuhai. He also expressed his hope that the collaboration with Zhongshan will generate key tangible outcomes in the long-term cooperation between Guangdong and Macau.
In the meeting with Zhuhai government officials, the CE said he believed this year would be an important one to further intensify bilateral goals. Such goals include strengthening industry diversification, expediting cross-boundary infrastructures and capitalizing on the new boundary-crossing policy.
The Secretary for Economy and Finance, Lionel Leong, who also took part in the visit, said that the establishment of reputable traditional Chinese medicine centers in Macau – notably, the State Key Laboratory for Quality Research in Chinese Medicine, and the center set up by the World Health Organization – would enable its products to meet international standards so that they may be exported worldwide.
Meanwhile, Li Jia, Secretary of the committee of the Zhuhai Communist Party of China (CPC), commented that the next five years would be important not only for Macau but also for Zhuhai. This is due to the introduction of the Hengqin Free Trade Zone and the completion of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-
Macau Bridge. He suggested both governments should better prepare for industry diversification, and establish effective mechanisms for the opportunities emerging in the inter-metropolitan areas of Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau.
After his talk with Zhuhai officials, Chui Sai On visited Zhongshan and met with the city’s CPC committee secretary, Xue Xiaofeng. The CE stated that he has received a positive response from the leaders in Beijing concerning discussions with Zhongshan, including the building of the Cuiheng New District. Alongside the Guangdong provincial government, Chui said Macau will strive to include projects in collaboration with Zhongshan into the Guangdong-Macau Cooperation Framework Agreement.
