MGM today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Macau enterprise Macaufacture Medical Supplies Limited (MMSL) on its purchase of 300,000 locally produced surgical face masks, a demonstration of MGM’s pledge to support local SMEs and emerging industries as well as give credence to Macau brands and “Made in Macau” products. As the city’s first large enterprise to collaborate with MMSL, MGM once again offers practical support to local brands as part of its effort to promote Macau’s economic diversification.
Linked up by Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM), MGM started to explore business opportunities with MMSL. Given the masks supplied by MMSL are produced locally and received accreditation from testing organizations in Macau, Mainland, Europe and the US, MGM decided to purchase 300,000 surgical face masks from them as the starting point of the collaboration. At the 25th Macao International Trade and Investment Fair (MIF), MGM Vice President of Supply Chain Services Gary Chung and MMSL Chairman Chan Chi Meng signed a MOU on the purchase of face masks. The signing ceremony was witnessed by guests including Mr. Lau Wai Meng, President of IPIM; Ms. Zhu Hong, Deputy Director-General of the Department of Economic Affairs of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Macao Special Administrative Region and Mr. Chan Long Seng, Deputy Director of General Affairs of Commercial and Industrial Department of Macao Chamber of Commerce.
With a view to providing quality masks to Macau people, MMSL set up a factory to produce their “853 Face Mask”, a brand with strong connotation to Macau. MMSL purposely established production lines in Macau to help revitalize the city’s industrial sector. Chan Chi Meng said, “We have adopted a quality-centric approach to our brand in Macau. Despite the city’s small population, we are pleased to receive a purchase order of 300,000 masks from MGM, which is truly encouraging for us. Our collaboration with a large enterprise in Macau will certainly increase our publicity as well as the market share of ‘Made in Macau’ products.”
In support of local SMEs and emerging industries, MGM leverages its platform to promote Macau brands and create business opportunities for the businesses. Earlier, MGM invited another local face mask manufacturer to present their “Made in Macau” masks at a roadshow held in back-of-house areas of its properties. The roadshow helped promote the local brand and allowed team members to buy quality products at a special price.
