The British Chamber of Commerce in Macao (BritCham) celebrated its 15th anniversary this evening (Thursday) amid optimism as the SAR is gearing up for deeper integration with neighbouring Hengqin and the Greater Bay Area (GBA).
“We see the future as good, especially with the GBA development and if Macau is going to get more involved in Hengqin, it should good for everybody,” BritCham Macao Chairman Keith Buckley told Macau News Agency.
As for future areas with potential for future British investment in Hengqin and the GBA, Mr Buckley points to cultural industries and education, healthcare and pharmaceuticals.
Established in 2006 as the British Business Association of Macao and relaunched in 2019 as a chamber of commerce, BritCham Macao has been holding a number of events annually, such as breakfast meetings and luncheons, seminars, visits and an annual gala dinner, among other activities.
BritCham Macao’s 15th Anniversary cocktail event, held at Vasco Bar, Artyzen Grand Lapa Macao, included performances from the Colégio MCM University of Macau String Quartet and a rendition of “Scotland the Brave” from bagpiper Nathan Kwan.
