Chef demonstrates Macanese, Portuguese cooking in Nanjing

A demonstration of how to prepare Macanese and Portuguese food, a feature of Macao Week in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu, was shown live online, the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) says.

The MGTO issued a written statement saying the demonstration was given last Saturday at the Jinling Hotel in the provincial capital, Nanjing, by Macao chef Lou Chi Seng, accompanied by a Chinese internet celebrity.

The office says Mr Lou showed how to cook Minchi, a famous Macanese dish, and how to prepare braised pork ribs Portuguese-style, served with broad beans, a Jiangsu seasonal ingredient.

Over 14 days the hotel is giving demonstrations of the preparation of 33 Macanese or Portuguese dishes, giving the last on May 26, the MGTO says.

Macao Week in Jiangsu includes a four-day stop by a Macao road show in the pedestrian precinct near the Confucius Temple in Nanjing, and performances of Portuguese folk dancing, the last today, the office says.

Jiangxi developer building homes in southern Mozambique

State-owned China Jiangxi Corporation for Economic & Technical Cooperation Co. Ltd (CJIC) has started construction of a mixed-use development in Mutanhane, just north of Maputo, Jornal Visão reports.

The Mozambican newspaper says CJIC will spend US$250 million on building 500 homes on a 50 hectare site.

The newspaper quotes an executive of CJIC, Li Changchun, as saying when Governor Júlio Parruque of Maputo visited the site on Tuesday that the developer will build 100 homes in the first phase of construction.

The report quotes Mr Parruque as calling for CJIC to employ local workers, and as expressing the hope that the project will lead to broader cooperation by Mozambique and the southeastern Chinese province of Jiangxi.

IPIM set up the pavilion to show how Macao serves as a place where China and the Portuguese-speaking world can do business, according to a written statement issued by the institute on Monday, the last day of the expo.

IPIM arranged 60 business-matching sessions on the first day of the four-day expo, the institute says.

MPI co-hosts the 11th Conference of International Network of Higher Education Institutions of Portuguese Speaking Countries

With the objective of contributing to the reinforcement of Macao’s role as a Sino-Lusophone cooperation platform and improving the knowledge of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao among Higher Education Institutions in Lusophone countries and regions, the Macao Polytechnic Institute (MPI), in partnership with the Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal, will host the 11th conference of FORGES (Forum of Higher Education Management in Portuguese-speaking Countries and Regions), under the theme, “Cooperation in Higher Education in Portuguese-speaking Countries and Regions in the face of Global Challenges”.

The Conference will take place between 22 and 26 November 2021, in a mixed model (online and in-person). Throughout the week, there will be daily three-hour sessions online. If public health conditions are met, the face-to-face component will take place at the Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal, in a format closer to the traditional one. The possibility of remote participation in all sessions will be ensured, through digital platforms. Thematic sessions are foreseen in seven predefined themes and the organisers accept proposals for special sessions on relevant topics in the context of higher education in Portuguese-speaking countries and regions.

With the announcement by the Central Government in 2018 of the “Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area”, a strategy was defined directed at creating an International Center for Technological Innovation in the region, by attracting international talent and increasing links between the academic world and the modern industrial system. This strategy includes many references to Portuguese-speaking countries, which opens up new opportunities for academic cooperation that fully benefit from Macao’s role as a Sino-Lusophone platform, in the perspective of innovation and internationalization, answering today’s global challenges.

This is the second time that MPI has hosted the FORGES conference, having welcomed the 2nd Conference in 2012. MPI has been intensifying its contributions to the training of qualified bilingual talents, the promotion of teaching of the Portuguese language in the Greater Bay and other regions of China, and the development of scientific research in the areas of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Translation through the creation of the Chinese-Portuguese-English Machine Translation Laboratory, thus playing a relevant role in the construction and development of Macao as a platform for cooperation between China and the Portuguese-speaking countries.
