A delegation led by Yao Jian, Deputy Director of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Macao SAR (CLO), recently visited MGM COTAI and presented a certificate of appreciation to MGM for its anti-pandemic efforts to support the nation and the SAR government. Officials accompanying Yao Jian included Chen Guo Kai, Director General of Economic Affairs Department; Zuo Xiang Hua, Director of Economic Affairs Department; and other representatives. MGM senior executives including Kenneth Feng, President, Chief Strategic & Financial Officer; Hubert Wang, President & Chief Operating Officer; and Wendy Yu, Executive Vice President of Human Resources extended a warm welcome to the delegation. They went on a tour of the hotel to view how anti-pandemic measures have been implemented to protect both guests and employees. The two parties also took this occasion to exchange views on opportunities and challenges arising from Macau’s economic recovery after the pandemic.
Yao Jian recognized MGM’s anti-pandemic efforts in the past few months. MGM has fulfilled its corporate social responsibility by acting promptly to assist the mainland and local communities in the spirit of helping each other. This dedication has also underscored its deep roots in Macau and strong patriotic spirit. While presenting a certificate as a token of appreciation to MGM, the CLO also encouraged the Company to continue working in unity and cooperating with the SAR government and different groups to combat the pandemic. The CLO also stressed the need to cultivate team members’ passion and sense of belonging to the nation.
Kenneth Feng said, “We are grateful to the Central People's Government and the SAR government for their unceasing effort and exceptional leadership since the outbreak of coronavirus disease. This, together with the cohesion among Macau citizens, has brought us to the road to recovery. Our hearts are always with our fellow countrymen and every community, and we should be able to create a better tomorrow if we continue to work in unison.”
At the onset of the pandemic in early February which saw Hubei overwhelmed by the virus, MGM swiftly came to offer a donation of MOP 20 million through the CLO. The donation would fund the purchase of medical, protective and emergency supplies and apparatus. In early April, the “MGM Art and Solidarity in Action for Wuhan” campaign was launched to bring forth over 2,000 pieces of heart-warming artworks from MGM team members, their family and local communities to cheer for frontline medical personnel in Wuhan. MGM also donated 500,000 face masks to the SAR government in mid-February to support its face masks supply scheme, a measure to tackle a global shortage of masks. Moreover, MGM continuously worked with different community partners to distribute anti-pandemic items to the needy. As for local SMEs, the Company launched the “MGM SME Anti-epidemic Support” program to increase their cash flow, enabling them to stand a better chance to recover when the economic condition improves.
