CHINA'S TWO SPECIAL ADMINISTRATIVE REGIONS AGREE TO STRENGTHEN CO-OPERATION

   China's two Special Administrative Regions have agreed to strengthen co-operation during Hong Kong Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa's first official visit to Macau since its reversion from Portuguese to Chinese administration last year. Mr Tung paid a half-day visit to Macau at the invitation of his local counterpart, Edmund Ho Hau-wah, on May 12.

    Speaking at the end of the visit, the Hong Kong SAR Chief Executive said both sides had agreed to increase co-operation in a wide range of areas. Mr Tung stated he was optimistic about the future development of bilateral relations between the two Special Administrative Regions in the Pearl River Delta. He also said that the Hong Kong SAR Government had decided to appoint a special liaison officer to handle relations with the Macau SAR.

    Mr Ho described the visit as a "great success". He underlined the fact that a number of companies incorporated in Macau were interested in being listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
