Chui: SAR Gov’t to continue negotiating with LRT main contractor

Chief Executive Chui Sai On said he had had a meeting with the Secretary for Transport and Public Works Raimundo Rosario and members of the Transport Advisory Committee yesterday morning and that consensus has been reached that the Light Rail Transit (LRT) project should continue.
Chui Sai On added that public transportation would be the main method to solve the problem of Macau’s traffic and that no effort would be spared in building the LRT; meanwhile, other solutions would be considered to solve the city’s traffic problems. He was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a Central Government Liaison Office Spring Gala.
The Chief Executive vowed that the SAR Government would continue to negotiate with the main contractor of the LRT; if this entity failed to meet requirements, he said that as a region ruled by law the SAR would resolve the matter in accordance with the law.
With regard to the audit report released on Monday lambasting the University of Macau’s lack of competence in managing its funds, Chui Sai On said he has talked with the Secretary for Social and Cultural Affairs Alexis Tam Chon Weng, who has instructed the university to analyse the audit report and hand in a report in response. The Chief Executive said that more details would be released following further evaluation.
