Consul General HU Shan addresses the celebration
Consul General HU started his speech by extending his heartfelt regard and congratulations to the Macanese compatriots in Australia.
“Since the return 10 years ago, Macau has achieved continuous economic growth, social harmony and stability.” Mr. Hu remarked, “Macau’s economic and social system, way of life, cultural traditions and features remain unchanged. But change did happen to Macau in terms of its booming economy, its brand new look and its ever closer ties with the Mainland.”
Mr. Hu noted, “Facts have proved that the Macanese have the full wisdom and capability to run and build Macau well, the Motherland has been and will always be the strong backing for Macau, and the ‘One Country, Two Systems’ policy is a correct choice.”
