MGM held a one-day seminar on Monday for its staff members on the “Spirit of the Two Sessions”, the American gaming operator said in a statement.
The statement pointed out that the third session of the 13th National People’s Congress (NPC) and the third session of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), commonly known as the “two sessions”, were held last month.
According to the statement, the aim of the seminar was to help staff members “keep abreast” of the nation’s development.
The seminar was part of the company’s “national education series,” the statement pointed out.
According to the statement, two Macao delegates to the “two sessions,” Ho Sut Heng and Ho Teng Iat, briefed the seminar on the highlights and spirit of last month’s NPC and CPPCC National Committee sessions. The seminar was held at MGM Cotai.
The statement said that over 200 local MGM mid-to-top management staff attended the seminar.
“The seminar enabled team members to realise that Macao’s development is closely intertwined with the prosperity and success of our nation,” the statement said.
Zhu Hong, deputy director of the Economic Affairs Department of the Central People’s Government Liaison Office attended the seminar as a guest of honour, the statement said.
According to the statement, Ho Teng Iat, a member of the CPPCC National Committee and the sister of Chief Executive Ho Iat Seng, told the seminar that “Macao cannot thrive persistently without the support of our nation. For this reason, we should get more acquainted with our country and strengthen our cohesion. It is particularly important to impart the advantages of ‘One Country, Two Systems’ to our next generations through national education, which is an attribute for the continued stability of China and Macao.”
Ho Sut Heng, one of the 12 local NPC deputies, was quoted as saying that “China’s determination to rule by law has been reflected by its policies on fostering economic recovery and safeguarding people’s livelihoods after the pandemic, as well as the NPC’s passing of the Civil Code and the decision to make national security laws for Hong Kong.”
