MGM China (“MGM”) has attained the Gold Award in the Youth Empowerment Initiative Category in Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Gold Awards 2021, in recognition of its project titled “MGM Youth Empowerment & Engagement Initiative”. Being recognized by PATA for the third time, right after we became the first integrated resort and hotel operator in Macau to receive the Grand Award in the Human Capital Development Category in 2020 and Gold Award in the Corporate Social Responsibility Category in 2018, this year MGM is adding another great achievement to its tally that truly recognizes its endeavor in paving an aspiring path to success for the next generation and supporting youth development.
Guided by the vision of “Unleashing Greatness for all”, the award-winning “MGM Youth Empowerment & Engagement Initiative” project exemplifies MGM’s dedication in local youth development, which is in alignment with Macau’s “Tourism+” initiatives, as well as supporting the city’s positioning such as the Creative City of Gastronomy, World Center of Tourism and Leisure and Tourism Training Hub for the Greater Bay Area. MGM provides a wide range of world-class training programs and continuing education schemes to benefit the professional growth of its team members and local youth. At the same time, the Company also offers diverse learning programs co-organized with government departments and community organizations to nurture local youth from multiple aspects.
Pansy Ho, Co-chairperson & Executive Director of MGM China Holdings Limited said, “Nurturing young local talents has always been at the core of MGM’s mission in both company and community level. As youth is the key dynamic of the development in the Macau SAR, MGM aspires to unleash their potentials through sustainable development and learning opportunities. We will continue to establish local youth empowerment initiatives in all areas, with special focus in hospitality, arts and culture that MGM excels in and prides ourselves of, to build a robust talent pool in future that goes in line with the ‘Tourism+’ strategy of Macau and its deeper integration into the Greater Bay Area.”
