Macau may become a platform for developing relations between Chinese and Portuguese-speaking media, said Victor Chan Chi Ping, director of the Government Information Bureau (GCS), during the “Macau Global Media Industry Development” conference.
The conference, the third of its kind held in Macau, was organised by the China News Service and Macau’s Ou Mun newspaper, with the support of the GCS, attended by Chief Executive Chui Sai On at its opening and more than a hundred participants from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the United States, Africa, Southeast Asia and Europe.
“We will do everything in our power to promote cooperation and exchange of ideas between China and Portuguese-speaking countries with the aim of increasing contacts in the media sector,” he said.
Chan Chi Peng also recalled that Macau was the first port in China to open to the West and in this tradition wants to continue to be a bridge between China and the rest of the world, in this case in the media sector.
Chan said that the “Belt and Road” initiative will allow the development of industries related to the media sector, pointing the way towards innovation, content production and technological development so that it is increasingly accessible to its users.
The director of the GCS also said he was sure that the conference will bring practical results and that Macau will certainly strengthen its role as an information platform for China and the Portuguese-speaking countries. (macauhub)
