With the implementation of the “12th Five-Year Plan” and the signing of Guangdong-Macao Cooperation Framework Agreement, the development and integration of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao have been sped up. In view of the escalating demand on power services due to the burgeoning regional development, there is a need to work out a better blueprint for the power supply in the long term. Proposed by China Southern Power Grid Co., Ltd (CSG), three major power industry suppliers of the three regions including CSG, CLP Power Hong Kong Limited (CLP) and Companhia de Electricidade de Macau – CEM. S.A. (CEM) will take turns to hold the “Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Power Industry Summit” regularly each year, in order to provide a platform for the top management of the power companies to meet regularly for exchange, thus strengthening the communication and cooperation.
The first preparatory meeting was held at Guangzhou Power Supply Bureau yesterday, with China Southern Power Grid International Department Deputy Director Wang Lin, CLP Corporate Development Group (Corporate and Community Relations) Deputy Director Julian Lam, CLP Corporate and Community Relations District Relations Manager – South China Philip Liu, CLP Guangzhou Rep Office Chief Representative Grace Qu as well as CEM Communications and Public Affairs Senior Manager Iun Iok Meng and Assistant Manager Jaclyn Iun attending the meeting. The representatives decided to organize the first term of the “Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Power Industry Summit” in Macao in September.
Iun Iok Meng expressed that it is a great honor for CEM to hold the first “Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Power Industry Summit”. Macao’s economy is growing rapidly in recent years, and it is of great importance for CEM to provide a reliable power supply for the region. It is an issue valued and affirmed by its industry peers. The first summit will have a forward-looking influence on the long-term power supply, whether it is for Macao or all three regions of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao.
