Heart-to-Heart with Hong Kong and Macao


The Hall of Macao receives support from the Macao SAR Government Cultural Industry Fund and will be sponsored by the Cultural Public Institution of Macao. Through books display and cultural activities, the hall endeavors to promote Macanese publications, showcase Macao's historical culture and social development, and enable domestic and foreign readers to deepen their understanding of Macao on the 20th anniversary of its return to China.

 

The Hall of Macao will put on display more than 500 types of publications, and about 40 publishing organizations will participate. With Macao's local culture as the main theme, the following books will be the key highlights here: "20th Anniversary of the Return of Macao to China" series, which was jointly planned by the Macau Association of Composers, Authors & Publishers and the Macau Cultural Education Publishing Association. 20 important books that were published in the last 20 years since Macau's return to China will combine into an intensive display of Macao's accomplishments in areas like culture and academia, and social development feats since its return to the motherland two decades ago. The series is jointly published by the Guangdong People's Publishing House and Cultural Public Institution of Macao, and will simultaneously hit the shelves in bookstores across both mainland China and Macao in order to tell to the Macau society, mainland China and the international community the "one country, two systems" story of Macao.
