In line with the Macao SAR Government’s policy to place more priority on conventions, the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM) has appointed six well-respected professionals in different sectors from China and abroad as conference ambassadors.

The experts are Orlando Monteiro da Silva (dental specialist), Zhu Lilan (strategy scientist and chemist), He Jingtang (architect), Li Ning (entrepreneur and athlete), Tsui Lap-Chee (molecular genetics specialist), and Liu Chung Laung (IT expert).

Holiday World Tours’ managing director, Paul Leung, said: “These are familiar faces in China and Asia so their influence may help drum up noise within their respective fields.”

Powerhouse Convention and Exhibition’s president, Todd Cai, hopes to see the size of the ambassador team double or triple.

He also hopes to see “more influential representatives from IT, direct selling and insurance (as they have) an extensive business network”, as well as more “faces from other countries”.
