According to the committee, the exhibition will comprise aerospace, aviation, marine, e-commerce, health, power resource, interactive zone, and Macau’s innovations in the area of talks and film screenings.
The exhibition will display some 60 elements of the latest technology, including the launch vehicle for the Long March 5 Series rockets and Chang’e 1 Moon-Globe plus models and virtual experiences demonstrating the current technological achievements of Mainland China.
Ma Chi Ngai – Chairman of the Macau Science and Technology Fund (FDCT) – said in the press conference that the exhibition seeks to encourage education on technology and innovation – in particular, for the young population – in addition to strengthening the national confidence of the general public. As such, student tours are in particular welcome to visit the exhibition.
The technology exhibition, organised by the Science and Technology Committee, is also supported by the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology and FDCT. The exhibition has already been held in Beijing last June.
The Technology Committee noted that entry to the exhibition is free and that a shuttle bus between the venue and the Peninsula will be provided.
