The Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) has released the results of its study on nocturnal tourism. Some study participants urge nighttime events should be located away from residential areas, while others expect more diverse tourism products. A representative of an urban development group suggests the government consider holding such tourism events in the future Reclamation Zone B, mainly planned for government offices, which is vacant at night. The head of the Tourism Council used the Ruins of St. Paul’s as an example, saying that it has different views at night, which may be appealing to some tourists.

The Hong Kong veteran introduced concerned laws and policies in place in the neighboring SAR, the constitution of investigation, psychological effects on victims, risk evaluation and other aspects. The Domestic Violence Law has been in place for almost three years in Macau. A legally-required review will be conducted in October this year.
