The Macau SAR Government Policy Research Office’s principal consultant Mi Jian reiterated yesterday that his team will be formed mainly by local people and plans to conduct research on Macau’s education system, amongst many others, in the future.

Meeting with the Portuguese and English media yesterday Mi Jian disclosed that he had just met with a local politician and they discussed about the importance to “internationalise” the education system of Macau in order to cultivate local talents and professionals.

“We all know how hard it is to find human resources in Macau,” he said, “we [the Policy Research Office] hope to do some research on the education system so as to present some advice and suggestions to the chief executive.”

Meanwhile, Mi Jian stressed that the principle is to hire a majority of the Office’s members, which include experts, technicians and assistants, from Macau.

The preliminary idea is to form four working groups specialised in law and politics, economy, society and culture within the Office, and each group will consist of no more than three experts.

However, Mi admitted that experts from outside of Macau could be invited to hold the posts.

On the other hand, he said the Office is not going to launch a lot of public consultation work but conduct research on specific topics in comply with the instructions of the chief executive.
