Macao Chief Executive Ho Iat Seng believes Macao can help enterprises in the nearby southern Chinese city of Shenzhen to tap markets in the Portuguese-speaking world, his government said on Monday.
The Macao government issued a written statement quoting Mr Ho as telling Shenzhen Municipal Committee secretary Wang Weizhong, that Macao is particularly keen to promote sales abroad of Chinese traditional medicines produced in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
Mr Ho and Mr Wang met in the course of a four-day tour by Mr Ho of cities in the area, of which Macao and Shenzhen both form part.
By performing its function as a place where China and lusophone countries can do business, Macao can help Shenzhen increase its economic engagement with the Portuguese-speaking world, the government of Macao quotes Mr Wang as saying.
