At both ends of the shopping street, Tourist Information counters will be set up with the Macao Tourism Mascot MAK MAK showing up as per schedule, where locals can enquire about Macao’s tourism situation. There will also be giveaways during the Beijing Macao Week. Locals can scan the QR code at the Tourist Information counters to access the H5 page, then acquire electronic stamps through scanning other QR codes at various zones, follow Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO)’s WeChat ID (“mgtoweixin”) and take a photo at the main stage to share on Wechat with friends, in exchange of gifts obtained at the designated station in Macau Center.

To further enhance cooperation between Beijing and Macao, MGTO and the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM) will ride on the visit to co-organize a “Beijing – Macao tourism and MICE presentation” in Beijing on 27 September to facilitate exchange among industry delegates from both cities and explore the development of tourism, MICE and other related industries on both sides in the wake of the pandemic.
