Macau Office in Taiwan to suspend operations

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.
