The Macau Economic and Cultural Office in Taiwan will suspend its operations starting from June 19, the SAR Government announced on Wednesday.
According to a statement issued by the Government Information Bureau, the Government “fully takes into account the needs of Macau residents in Taiwan”.
Local authorities said that “a 24-hour telephone hotline (+853 2833 3000) set up by the Macau Government Tourism Office will be – during the period of operation suspension – addressing general enquires, and providing other services and any assistance requested by Macau residents that are in Taiwan”.
The decision follows a similar move made by the Hong Kong SAR last month.
The Hong Kong Economic, Trade and Cultural Office (Taiwan) (HKETCO) suspended operations on May 18.
