In light of the effects of the Covid-19 outbreak which heavily impacts the construction industry, Melco Resorts & Entertainment has offered 100 job opportunities to unemployed local construction workers with support from Labour Affairs Bureau (DSAL) and Macao Federation of Trade Unions (FAOM). Continuing to support Melco’s ongoing commitment to local people and to help those in need during this quieter period, the Company recently held a recruitment fair to hire local workers for its various construction projects. Successful applicants will be offered a one-year employment contract, starting work within this month, and on-the-job training to enhance technical skills for personal growth, as well as to contribute to the sustainable development of the local community. Melco will work closely with DSAL and FAOM to support the Macao SAR Government’s efforts to sustain the local workforce and safeguard local livelihood.

Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman & CEO of Melco, said, “Melco has long been committed to the sustainable development of Macau, as well as promoting Whole Person Development for local citizens. At this challenging and unprecedented time, we stand with the people and the Macao SAR Government in our fight against the impacts of the Covid-19 outbreak. Further to our ongoing initiatives with local community partners such as Women’s General Association of Macau and Macao Federation of Trade Unions (FAOM), the current recruitment project looks to support the needs of the local community through the effective creation of job opportunities and the sense of togetherness, as a show of Melco’s care and concern for another of the local groups most affected by recent events.”

Melco’s local worker hiring announcement follows recent initiatives to help minimize the social impact of COVID-19, including a HKD 20 million donation to Wuhan and Hubei in support of the Government’s initiatives to contain the spread of the virus; a MOP 8 million donation which includes a MOP 5 million donation for the local Macau community to set up a Special Aid Fund for Workers in Need in partnership with Macao Federation of Trade Unions (FAOM), helping to take care of the unemployed; and a MOP 3 million donation to Women’s General Association of Macau for the purchase of surgical face masks and providing allowance scheme for families impacted by the Coronavirus. The Company is also supporting Macau Daily News’ public health awareness and wellbeing online video series, further publicizing the government’s Coronavirus prevention appeal.
