Shiu Pong College visited the Commemorative Gallery of the Macao Basic Law
The Shiu Pong College (SPC) strives to boost students’ understanding of and pride in Chinese culture and history, and to enhance their national awareness and belonging. On March 3, 2021, 24 members of SPC visited the Commemorative Gallery of the Macao Basic Law.
Established in 2013, the Commemorative Gallery of the Macao Basic Law has shouldered the responsibilities to promote a better understanding of the process of Macao’s return to the motherland. The historical traces of Macao’s development preserved by the Gallery present how Macao has transformed into a sizzling international city from a booming Portuguese trading port. Through learning the negotiation process between the Chinese and the Portuguese governments, the signing of the Joint Declaration on the Question of Macao, the process of drafting work and consultation relating to the Basic Law, and the handover and the establishment of Macao Special Administrative Region, the young generation became more aware of Macao history and its recent achievement, and has cultivated and nurtured patriotism among them.
