The Macao SAR Secretary for Economy and Finance, Leong Vai Tac, has appointed Zhu Lilan, former Minister of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China-cum-Consultant to the Macao Science and Technology Commission, as a “Conference Ambassador” for Macao. Ms Zhu also served as a member of the 9th and 10th Standing Committee respectively of the National People’s Congress of China and is now President of the China Association of Inventions, and Chair of the Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation. Ms Zhu vowed to promote the development of Macao’s meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE) industry, with a particular focus on technology. Attracting a greater number of technology-focused gatherings to Macao would encourage youngsters to join the technology sector and promote further the development of science, she stated. Ms Zhu became the seventh person to join the city’s “Conference Ambassadors” programme, an initiative launched in 2017 by the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM).
