MGM Invites Representatives of Yangzhou to Macau to Strengthen Cooperation in Tourism Exchange and Training
Sending MGM Chef’s Team to Join Morning Tea Culture Week in Yangzhou, Showcasing the Charm of Macau as a ‘Creative City of Gastronomy’
MGM invited a delegation from Yangzhou to Macau to facilitate exchanges.

MGM has actively implemented initiatives to align with the Macao SAR Government’s “Tourism+” integration strategy. Last year, MGM arranged a visit for representatives of both the Macau government and tourism industry to Yangzhou, Jiangsu Province – a city that shares the same designation with Macau as the “Creative City of Gastronomy”. During the visit, MGM signed an agreement with local universities and enterprises to foster tourism talent in Jiangsu and Macau. In addition, the Company earlier invited a delegation from Yangzhou to Macau, facilitating exchanges between the two cities to further bolster cooperation in tourism and talent training.


Explore Collaborative Opportunities

MGM recently invited a delegation led by Wang Jinjian, Secretary of the CPC Yangzhou Municipal Committee, to MGM COTAI for an exchange session. In addition, Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, Director of the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO); Cindia Lam, Dean of the Institute of Executive and Professional Development of the Macao University of Tourism and Ben Wong, Co-Chairperson of the Association of Patriotism Exchange (Macao), were also invited as distinguished guests. During the event, Kenneth Feng, President and Executive Director of MGM China Holdings Limited, met with representatives of MGTO and Yangzhou, to discuss more on collaborative opportunities, seeking to further leverage the strengths of both cities and promote the quality development of Macau’s integrated tourism and leisure industry.


Meanwhile, Yangzhou delegates also visited MGM’s various cultural tourism offerings, including the MGM Theater, Asia’s first dynamic theater; the Spectacle that seamlessly blends innovative technology and greenery art; the “Fondant Art Exhibition” and a series of antique carpets dating from the Qing Dynasty, to know more about how MGM integrates tourism, art and culture to create one-of-a-kind tourism experiences that echo with the Company’s core ethos of “art of living”.


Gastronomic Exchange between Macau and Yangzhou

Yangzhou and Macau, both recognized by UNESCO as “Creative Cities of Gastronomy”, each have a unique morning tea culture. At the invitation of the century-old Fuchun Teahouse in Yangzhou, MGM sent Tam Yim Chan, Executive Sous Chef of Chún, and his team to participate in the “2024 Morning Tea Culture Week in Yangzhou”, where they demonstrated innovative Cantonese delicacies such as “Fried Radish Cake in XO Sauce,” “Crispy Spring Rolls with Foie Gras and Shrimps,” and “Crab Meat Morel Siu Mai,” to Yangzhou’s food enthusiasts. These signature creations by MGM not only complemented the traditional offerings of the Fuchun Teahouse, but also act as a bridge to strengthen the gastronomic connection between the two cities.
