We are pleased to partner with JCI Macao, China, MYEIC and CPTTM to help develop knowledge of sustainable development for Macau’s youth entrepreneurs, and ultimately contribute to the diversification of the local economy.”

Mr. Ernest Leong, National President of JCI Macao, China, said, “Young people form the foundations of a robust and well-developed society. JCI has always been committed to providing developmental opportunities for youth while bringing positive change to individuals and the community at large. We understand that persons from all walks of life have been impacted by the pandemic. In view of this, our reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, JCI RISE, aims to assist the rebuilding and sustainable development of SMEs around the world. Coincidentally, the objective of the Adopt a Micro-Enterprise program is well-aligned with that of JCI RISE and has been well received by young entrepreneurs and the broader society to achieve wonderful results.”

Mr. Carlos Lam, CEO of MYEIC, said, “Many enterprises are highly appreciative of business advice offered during their development phases. Melco’s Adopt a Micro-Enterprise program has been customized to help youth enterprises better understand the specifications of larger corporations. We are glad to see an array of programs being offered to youth entrepreneurs from various entities in Macau in recent years, providing them with opportunities to master essential skills and knowledge for self-enhancement. In alignment with the aims of MYEIC, these programs contribute to the establishment of a value-added development platform – helping youth entrepreneurs realize innovative ideas and new business plans. We will continue to play our role as a bridge for the industry – to continue promoting a ‘dare to try’ attitude among youth entrepreneurs.”

Board Director of Digital Bay, Mr. Chris Wong, one of the program participants, said, “As a youth entrepreneur in the community, we are thankful for this invaluable opportunity to be selected for participation in such an inspiring program, meeting with various mentorship departments at Melco to improve our business acumen and competitiveness. We look forward to joining more customized entrepreneur-empowering programs by Melco in the future.”
