A large photo exhibition celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and the 20th anniversary of Macau’s return to the motherland opened in Macao on September 1. Edmund Ho Hau Wah, vice chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference was present at the opening ceremony. Chui Sai On, chief executive of China's Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR), Fu Ziying, director of the Liaison Office of Central People’s Government of the Macao SAR, and Wu Lan, deputy secretary of the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee addressed those in attendance.
The ceremony was also attended by persons in charge of the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China in the Macao SAR, the People's Liberation Army Macao Garrison, the China Institute of CPC Literature Research, related Macao SAR departments, and related Hunan departments.
The exhibition features exhibits displayed at Shaoshan’s Mao Zedong Memorial Hall. It aims to demonstrate Chairman Mao’s glorious struggle on behalf of the Chinese people and the outstanding contributions of Chinese Communist Party (CPC) members who were inspired by Chairman Mao’s example, to liberate China, obtain national independence, and improve people’s daily lives.
Chui Sai On said that, since returning to China, Macao has achieved rapid and sound development by boarding the national development express train. “The photo exhibition shows our leaders’ extraordinary leadership and noble sentiments, which will inspire us to work harder and make progress in all efforts,” added Chui.
Fu Ziying said that Chairman Mao Zedong had a deep relationship with Macao. Fu stated, “The photo exhibition showcases great men’s remarkable achievements. This reminds us of remaining true to our original aspiration while going forward and cherishing our hard-won life, and inspires us to make greater efforts to realize the Chinese dream—the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.”
Wu Lan believed that the exhibition will help people at home and abroad, including the Macanese to better understand the Chinese people and the CPC’s history of struggle and the splendid development presently occurring. It is of great significance to building consensus, promoting unity, and gathering strength for Chinese dream realization. Wu continued, “Hunan is the home province of Chairman Mao. In recent years, it has had increasing contact with Macao. The two sides have carried out a large number of fruitful and pragmatic cooperation.”
“Hunan will support the construction of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, continue to regard Macao as an important window for expanding exchanges and cooperation with relevant countries, and expand cooperation in competitive industries to achieve win-win results,” said Wu.
