[September 3, 2018, Macau] On August 29, MGM organized over 30 team members to visit Hengqin, exploring the new model of cooperation between Guangdong Province, Hong Kong and Macau. They were warmly welcomed by the Macao Affairs Bureau of the Zhuhai Hengqin New Area Administrative Committee.
The visit engaged team members who completed the MGM PRIDE talent development program. It helped them better understand the latest development in Hengqin and seize the opportunities brought about by the Greater Bay Area initiatives. The group first visited the observation deck at the Hengqin Headquarters Tower to inspect Hengqin’s urban strategies and planning systems, and then went to the Hengqin New Area Construction and Development Planning Exhibition Hall which showcases the Hengqin’s history, development progress, future planning, and more. Their visit also included tours of other large-scale projects such as the Xiangzhou Port Culture Block, one of the major cultural projects in Guangdong Province, and the Traditional Chinese Medicine Science and Technology Industrial Park of Cooperation between Guangdong and Macao.
MGM team member Ms. Lam, who participated in this visit, expressed her positive expectation towards the future development of the Greater Bay Area, “This visit is a fruitful experience to me, as it provides me a deeper understanding of the current status and future development of Hengqin. The district’s urban planning strategically includes various elements such as finance, tourism and entertainment, art and culture, Chinese medicine and natural conservation,” she continued, “When all transportation facilities are in full operation, I believe this will enhance the cooperation between Guangdong Province, Hong Kong and Macau. Among all, Chinese medicine will be able to be promoted to African countries which sign up to the Belt and Road Initiative. We should learn from these innovative ideas from Hengqin, in order to seize opportunities brought about by the Greater Bay Area’s diversified development.”
