The event was officiated by guests including Dr. Alexis Tam Chon Weng, Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture of Macau SAR Government; Ms. Zhang Jianghua, Deputy Director-General of the Economic Affairs Department of Liaison Office of The Central People’s Government in The Macau SAR; Mr. Naoki Yoshiike, Consul-Economic Section of Consulate-General of Japan in Hong Kong; Ms. Lam Yuan Mui, Director-General of Macau Women’s General Association of Macau and Ms. Ho Xue Heng, Vice President of Federação das Associações dos Operarios de Macau (FAOM).

Dr. Alexis Tam Chon Weng, Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture, commented: “The year 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Macao SAR Government. During this time, tourism and surrounding industries have flourished, catalyzing endless opportunities and strengthening the advance of gender equality. In Macau, where instances of families with both parents working have increased, the pressure for working mothers have been the focus of much attention. Maintaining women’s rights and interests have always been one of the important policies of the Macau government. I am pleased that Melco has long been an advocate of the development and implementation of initiatives for women, bringing further female-friendly activities and policies to society. Today, I am glad to witness Melco continue investing resources to the cause, contributing to the fruitfulness and meaningfulness of the lives of Macau’s women.”

In 2008, Melco partnered with the Organization for Oncology and Translational Research, the Worker’s Medical Clinic. The company also partnered with Women’s General Association of Macau to provide free health examinations. Melco is the first integrated resort to set up lactation rooms across all our major properties to support working mothers.
