In commemoration of the 104th Anniversary of the "May Fourth Movement", MGM jointly organized the “MGM Commemoration of China’s May Fourth Movement Activities” with Livelihood Affairs Bureau of Guangdong-Macao In-Depth Cooperation Zone in Hengqin (DSAS) and Macau Youth Federation. The event included a sharing session on “Macau Youth’s Development in Guangdong-Macao In-Depth Cooperation Zone in Hengqin” hosted by the Director of DSAS and Chairman of the Organising Committee for May 4 Youth Day Celebration, then a promotion on “May Fourth Movement Community Outreach eLearning program”, a screening session of “Back to Common Roots Narrative Film”, and a tea-time talk with the Director of DSAS, which attracted 150 participants from local schools, youth associations and MGM team. The event aimed to encourage youth to live out the spirit of the May Fourth Movement and contribute to the development of the nation, the Greater Bay Area (GBA) and the In-Depth Cooperation Zone, as well as to cultivate a sense of national belonging and patriotism.
Hosted at MGM COTAI, the event was supported by a lineup of guests, including: Huang Yu Jie and Xu Feng Mei, Director and Deputy Director of DSAS; Zhou Quan, Level-three Researching Technician of the Education and Youth Department of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Macao SAR; O Man Ian, Acting Head of Department of Youth of Education and Youth Development Bureau of the Macao SAR; Wong Ka Lun and Anita Tai, Director-General and Secretary-General of Macao Youth Federation; Tang Man Kei, Chairman of the Organising Committee for May 4 Youth Day Celebration and Head of the Youth Affairs Committee of UGAMM; Mandy Chan, President of Tea Art Professionals’ Association of Macao; Francis Tan and Benjamin Hong, Vice President and Director of Learning & Talent Management of MGM.
Huang Yu Jie, Director of DSAS shared the development insights of the Guangdong-Macao In-Depth Cooperation Zone in Hengqin (Zone) with the participants, particularly in aspects of its strategic positioning, management, and the supportive measures for local youth working and living in the Zone. As mentioned by Huang, the SAR government endeavors to benefit the youth with the supportive policies offered by both the Macau and Guangdong governments, so that they can develop their career and live in the Zone with ease. On top of the established cross-border licensing policy for various professions and online job-hunting platforms, the authorities are also proactively setting up incubation platforms to attract young entrepreneurs of immerging industry to start their business in the Zone.
Tang Man Kei, Chairman of the Organising Committee for May 4 Youth Day Celebration and Head of the Youth Affairs Committee of UGAMM, stressed the significance of the “May Fourth Movement” and the spirit of patriotism that it carries. He encouraged the youth to seize the new development opportunities, take part in the “1+4” diverse development initiative of Macau, and ultimately contribute to the development of both GBA and the Zone. On the other hand, he also introduced the community support and facilities available in the Zone and the GBA.
Wendy Yu, Executive Vice President of Human Resources of MGM said, “MGM spares no effort in educating youth with national development, where the Company has been collaborating with various sectors of the community to host a diverse lineup of national education series. For the third year, MGM joins hands with Macau Youth Federation to launch the ‘May Fourth Movement Community Outreach eLearning program’ and the ‘Youth Day’ online quiz, which enable team members and the public general to understand the core spirit of the Movement and the historical significance behind, inspiring them to adhere such patriotic spirit and contribute to the nation.”
Following the sharing session, a group of participants took part in the tea-time talk with the director of DSAS, which was supported by the Tea Art Professionals’ Association of Macao. The occasion enabled both the director and the participating youths to exchange their thoughts on the future of the Zone.
