Macau’s liberal professionals visit Brazil in fourth quarter

6 August 2019

Professionals from Macau are scheduled to pay a visit to Brazil in the fourth quarter of 2019 on an exchange with their Brazilian counterparts, including lawyers, the president of the Macau Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM) said on Monday.

Irene Va Kuan Lau also said that the visit organised by IPIM also aims to establish channels of cooperation, enabling Brazilian companies intending to enter the interior of China, as well as Chinese counterparts wishing to explore the Brazilian market, to use legal, business and other services in Macau to expand their business.

The IPIM President spoke at the fourth meeting of the Commission for the Development of the Platform for Trade Cooperation Services between China and the Portuguese-speaking Countries, which reflected on the work done and the progress made in the construction of the Trade Cooperation Services Platform between China and the Portuguese-speaking Countries, from the fourth quarter of 2018 to the present date.

Irene Va also noted that Macau has satisfactorily played its role as a platform for the promotion of trade growth, as evidenced by the fact that trade between China and the Portuguese-speaking countries rose 25.2% in 2018 when compared to 2017.

The Macau Chief Executive recalled that in 2019 the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the People’s Republic of China is celebrated, along with the 20th anniversary of Macau’s return to the motherland and the first year of implementation of the Development Planning Guidelines of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay.
