Macau SME Cooperative Program at the 13th Macao International Trade & Investment Fair

Macau, China, October 14, 2008 - The American Chamber of Commerce in Macau (AmCham Macau) is excited to announce the launch of the AmCham Macau SME Cooperative Program in cooperation with its 3 US member companies: MGM Grand Macau, The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel, and Wynn Macau, at the “U.S. Corner” at the 13th Macao International Trade & Investment Fair (MIF), October 23-26, 2008, at the Cotai Strip® CotaiExpo ™. 

“With the joint effort from Direcção dos Serviços de Economia (DSE), Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM), Macao Chamber of Commerce, U.S. Commercial Service and the above listed U.S. companies, this year’s MIF will allow AmCham Macau to serve as an effective platform for local SMEs to learn more about the types of goods and services that are in the highest demand among the U.S. companies”, says Charles Choy, Corporate Secretary and Governor of AmCham Macau.  Hosting these interactive sessions will allow U.S. companies to collect data from the SMEs and create a database for future reference.  To further explain the different levels of the procurement processes, the 3 U.S. companies will also conduct a seminar to provide an additional channel of communication for SMEs to raise their needs regarding the establishment of a business relationship with these companies.

Chairman of AmCham Macau, Paul Tse, stresses that this SME Program will create a greater understanding and build a stronger relationship between U.S. Commercial Service and the Macau SMEs. Andrew Wylegala, Chief Commercial Consul of the American Consulate General in HK & Macau, adds that the cooperation with AmCham Macau and IPIM in this Program will allow the U.S. Commercial Service to better understand the operation of local SMEs, thereby assisting more U.S. and Macau firms in developing mutually beneficial business relationships.

The AmCham Macau SMEs Cooperative Program will begin on October 24, at the “U.S. Corner” at MIF, with a series of business matching sessions with Macau SMEs, hosted by the procurement personnel from the 3 AmCham Macau member companies.  Aside from business matching sessions, AmCham Macau will organize a panel discussion on October 25 from 10:30AM – 11:30AM, which allows Macau SMEs to gain insight to the procurement processes of the U.S. companies and receive advice from the procurement personnel to assist them in becoming a qualified supplier to these companies.
