    Macao, December 11 – 14, 2019 - Small and Medium Enterprises World Forum.

    China is bold, ambitious, and have the resources. The "Greater Bay Area" (GBA) is a Chinese government's initiative to link the cities of Hong Kong, Macau, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Zhongshan, Dongguan, Huizhou, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing into an integrated economic and business hub.

    We need Big Ideas to change the world and at the forefront on this transformation are small and medium enterprises (SMEs) who are ready to engage all sectors of the society (industry, academia, entertainment, etc.) to enable the GBA to take its place as a major economic hub.   

    The SME World Forum focuses on Macau and with the theme of 2019, SMEs and Entrepreneurship – Leading the Way Forward. It is the premier event that brings all of these components together.

    • A-Ma Temple: It is the oldest temple in Macau, and is an exemplary representation of Chinese culture inspired by Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, and multiple folk beliefs.
    • Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral: They are the ruins of a 16th-century complex and regarded as one of Macau's best-known landmarks.
    • Senado SquareIt is the urban center of Macau. You may feel you are in a city by the Mediterranean Sea when you see the pastel-colored neo-classical buildings around the square.
    • Monte FortIt is an almost 400-year-old stone fort, which offers superb sunset and casino views from the top.
