The Chief Executive, Mr Chui Sai On, called on the people to join hands to help build a better Macao in the Year of the Horse.
The Government would continue to implement the long-term effective mechanisms and join hands with the people to build a better Macao to achieve fruitful prospects, Mr Chui said in his Lunar New Year Message.
But we have to stay alert for the existing challenges, he said.
In reminiscence the Year of Snake, Mr Chui said Macao’s economy had grown steadily and people’s livelihood had improved: constitutional development has also been carried forward in an orderly manner.
In the New Year that begins tomorrow, Mr Chui said the Government would speed up building Macao as the world tourism leisure hub and the business and trading service platform for China and the Portuguese-speaking countries.
He reminded the people to remember to care for and help socially vulnerable groups and share our happiness with them in these festive days.
Mr Chui also thanked civil servants and those who had to work over the holidays: he wished everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. (macaunews)
