The newly appointed Chinese Foreign Affairs Commissioner to Macau, Lu Shumin, paid a courtesy call on the Legislative Assembly’s president Susana Chou yesterday, during which they held talks about the development and condition of the SAR.

Lu also met with Chief Executive Edmund Ho Hau Wah at the government headquarters on May 30, one day after he took office to the post of ambassador and succeeded Wan Yongxiang, who had served in the SAR since 2002.

Speaking to media after the one-hour closed meeting at the Assembly, Lu said he was trying to “know more about Macau” and afterwards he could think about “how to exercise his duty in a proper way to facilitate the development and stability of the mainland and Macau”.

“I’m new to the post and still in a learning process. I would contribute our best according to the Macau Basic Law and the plans of the SAR government,” the commissioner said.

“We’re sharing the same goal with Macau which is to maintain the stability and prosperity for the region’s development,” he added.

The commissioner also vowed giving his efforts if the SAR government will in the future need assistance from the central government and the Chinese Foreign Ministry in Macau.

“My first impressive about Macau is quite good,” Lu said, adding “the place contains the vitality of development so I’m looking forward to seeing more in this direction.”
