The 6th Ministerial Conference of the Forum for Economic and Trade Cooperation between China and Portuguese-speaking countries has been postponed to 2020.
Last week, Chief Executive Chui Sai On presided over a plenary session of the Committee for Development of the Commercial and Trade Cooperation Service Platform between China and Portuguese-speaking countries where he announced the delay. Originally, the conference was planned to take place this year.
Forum Macau organizes a ministerial conference every three years in Macau. So far, five conferences have been held: October 2003, September 2006, November 2010, November 2013 and October 2016.
At the end of each ministerial conference, an updated Strategic Plan for Economic and Trade Co-operation is approved. The resulting documentation sets out a plan for economic and trade cooperation between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries for the following three years.
