The Government of Macao will be implementing a new development strategy to promote ‘Cultural Macao’ to strengthen the city’s heritage. It will increase practical training for appropriate professions whilst increasing the protection of the city’s heritage.

The government also aspires to increase the number of professional and international branding conventions by nurturing the fast-growing MICE industry through a flagship strategy – ‘Elevating Macao into a City of Events’.

For Cultural Macao, a list of Macao’s intangible cultural heritage will be compiled, establishing a heritage monitoring mechanism, and commencing the formulation of the plan for protection and management of the historic centre of Macao by-law.

Culture popularisation projects and art education projects will be implemented to encourage original creativity, enhanced cultural connections and the showcasing of the uniqueness of Macao’s diversified culture, enriching, in parallel, the cultural life of local residents.
