In a brief speech at the air­port, Li said it was his first vi­sit to Ma­cao and that he was hap­py to see the smi­ling child­ren who we­re Ma­cao’s fu­tu­re. The pre­mier sent the sin­ce­re gree­tings and wis­hes of the cen­tral govern­ment to Ma­cao com­pa­tri­ots.

The pre­mier said he would meet pe­o­p­le from all walks of li­fe du­ring his trip, to show that the cen­tral govern­ment sup­ports Ma­cao as a tou­rism and lei­su­re cen­ter and as a hub of com­mer­ci­al coo­p­e­ra­ti­on bet­ween Chi­na and Por­tu­gue­se-spea­king coun­tries. He said he would an­noun­ce re­le­vant po­li­cies and me­a­su­res to help Ma­cao speed up its eco­no­mic de­vel­op­ment and main­tain long-term pros­pe­ri­ty and sta­bi­li­ty.
