Chief Executive Fernando Chui Sai On said in Beijing on Wednesday that the Macau government was sparing no effort to study ways of resolving issues resulting from the fact that the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (GBA) comprises three different jurisdictions – Hong Kong, Macau and the mainland, the Macau Government Information Bureau (GCS) said in a statement.
Chui made the remarks in Beijing during a meeting of the leading group for GBA development. The meeting, held at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse, was chaired by Vice Premier Han Zheng.
During the meeting, according to the statement, Chui presented Macau’s expected contributions to the 11-city conurbation project, such as the “adequate diversification” of Macau’s economy and Macau’s proactive involvement in the central government’s plan to develop the GBA into an international hub for scientific and technological innovation.
According to the Macau Post Daily, the leading group was set up by the central government last year.
The statement pointed out that since the leading group’s establishment, the central government has launched a raft of measures in support of Macau’s participation in the GBA initiative, such as the promotion of scientific and technological development and innovation, support measures for the city’s traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) sector and Macau residents starting a business or seeking employment in other GBA cities, and tax coordination measures.
