The Chief Executive also provided information about the work being done by the Macau Government with a view to integration into the Greater Bay Area, notably in its role as a centre for international technological innovation.

A statement from the Macau Government said that, “since the establishment of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area Development Leaders Group, the Central Government has launched a number of pro-Macau policies (…) that will allow participation by residents in the development of Greater Bay Area cities, especially in the area of taxes, supporting young entrepreneurs, developing innovation, science and technology and increasing the simplification of movement of people and logistics.”
