July 17, 2020 – A delegation led by Mr. Yao Jian, Deputy Director of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Macau Special Administrative Region (“Liaison Office”) recently visited Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”) to present a certificate of appreciation for the company’s donation amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The delegates were warmly greeted by Mr. Philip Cheng, Director of GEG and other management executives. During the meeting, the two parties discussed the pragmatic leadership of the Central and the Macau Special Administrative Region (“SAR”) governments in preventing and controlling the spread of the pandemic, as well as the related measures that GEG had implemented to support the governments’ measures.

During the pandemic, GEG was fortunate to have the two-time coordination of the Liaison Office so that GEG’s donation could reach the different locations and institutions involved in Mainland China’s pandemic prevention and control work, including those involved in the construction of additional medical facilities, public health promotion, pandemic research, and others. Expressing their gratitude, the Liaison Office presented GEG with a certificate of appreciation as well as their wishes for GEG to continue cooperating with the Macau SAR Government on Macau’s pandemic prevention and economic recovery.

Mr. Yao Jian, Deputy Director of the Liaison Office said, “We wish to thank GEG for its diversified support to the Mainland and Macau community during the pandemic. GEG has actively fulfilled its corporate social responsibilities and has demonstrated the spirit of unity and solidity through its practical measures. The Liaison Office will continue to support the fight against this pandemic, coordinate donations, and work with the community for an early defeat of the pandemic.”

Mr. Philip Cheng, Director of GEG said, “GEG is grateful to have the ongoing support of the Liaison Office. As a Chinese enterprise that is rooted in Macau, GEG hopes to contribute to the country and Macau’s pandemic prevention effort, as well as support those in need. We have seen what Macau can do when the city unites and fights the pandemic together, and at GEG, we are thankful for our team members’ full support for our business operations, anti-pandemic measures, and community efforts. Looking forward, we will continue to firmly cooperate with, and support the Macau SAR Government on pandemic prevention and the economic recovery of Macau.”

Joining the Liaison Office for the visit included, Mr. Chen Guo Kai, Director General of the Economic Affairs Department of the Liaison Office; Mr. Dai Ruming, Deputy Director General of the Social Affairs Department of the Liaison Office; Mr. Zuo Xianghua, Director of the Economic Affairs Department of the Liaison Office; and Mr. Si Chen, Deputy Director of the Economic Affairs Department of the Liaison Office. GEG representatives that attended the meeting included Ms. Eileen Lui, Group Director of Human Resources and Administration; Mr. Buddy Lam, Senior Vice President of Public Relations; and others.

To date, GEG has donated MOP200 million to support the various pandemic prevention and control works in Mainland China and Macau. In addition to the philanthropies, GEG also donated one million face masks to the Macau SAR Government, the Zhuhai City Government, and Hengqin New Area Government; subscribed HK$100 million for the SMEs themed COVID-19 Impact Alleviation Social Bonds issued by the Bank of China (Macau Branch); offered financial support to Macau SMEs; and provided help to various social services organizations and schools in the form of pandemic prevention supplies and other assistance. Looking ahead, GEG will continue to uphold the philosophy of “what is taken from the community is to be used for the good of the community,” work closely with the community, and support society’s different community and charitable work.
