Jun 25, 2018
[June 25, 2018, Macau] With the support and facilitation of the Economic Affairs Department of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Macao SAR, MGM visited the key infrastructure of the Greater Bay Area, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB), on June 21. Team members not only had the opportunity to visit the grandiose construction of the century before it is officially opened to traffic, but also to gain an in-depth understanding of the infrastructure and development opportunities of the Greater Bay Area.
Led by Mr. Grant Bowie, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of MGM China Holdings Limited, 60 team members visited the main body of the world’s longest sea-crossing bridge via the artificial island in Gongbei. Mr. Wei Dongqing, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee and Executive Director of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Authority made an introduction of the structure, technical difficulties and construction progress of the Bridge to the team members.
Mr. Grant Bowie thanked the Liaison Office for offering this rare opportunity and the HZMB Authority for their warm reception, so that MGM team members can be one of the firsts to understand this mega project that will bring remarkable economic benefits to the Greater Bay Area. MGM always places high priority on nurturing local talent, and is committed to facilitating Macau to become the tourism education and training hub for the development of the Greater Bay Area. The soon-to-be opened HZMB will see a greater flow of people, goods and capital, bringing about new opportunities for the tourism industry of Macau. Therefore, MGM have to get prepared with talent training and development, in order to grasp hold of the opportunities of the new era.
After the visit, Macau local Edmond Chan said that when he was a teenager, he learned that a bridge would be built between Hong Kong and Macau and now, he can actually step on the bridge that took nine years to build with numerous world record-breaking technologies. He was deeply impressed by the advancement of the architectural and engineering technologies as well as the development capabilities of China, making him confident in the prospects of Macau.
