SEN visits Macau

The Secretary for the Environment, Mr Wong Kam-sing, leading a Hong Kong Special Administrative Government delegation, today (March 21) attended the 2013 Macao International Environmental Co-operation Forum & Exhibition to learn more about the green business opportunities brought about by the latest environmental technologies.

In the morning, Mr Wong attended the forum’s opening ceremony and its keynote address session, and toured the exhibition booths.

He also called on the Chief Executive of the Macau Special Administrative Region, Mr Chui Sai-on, to exchange views on strengthening co-operation in environmental protection between Hong Kong and Macau. He then attended a networking luncheon.

In the afternoon, Mr Wong visited the Macao Cotai Ecological Zones to see the wetland and mangrove conservation work that has taken place there. The ecological zone’s natural habitat nurtures a wide range of plants and animals, with many bird species also resident in the area.

Mr Wong then visited the Macao Refuse Incineration Plant to learn more about Macau’s waste management. Apart from treating waste, the facility recovers heat energy from waste combustion to generate electricity for Macau’s power grid.

Mr Wong and the delegation will conclude the visit and return to Hong Kong in the evening.
