The programme consists of three phases, namely, courses on the nation and Macau SAR, on-the-job training, as well as advanced training and field trips in the Mainland. With the goals to cultivate young talents with aspirations, ability and commitment, the programme is designed to foster Macau’s young employees to serve Macau and the Motherland with a patriotic heart and global perspective.
The first training phase was conducted from 14 to 18 November 2022 at the University of Macau with the participation of two young local employees from SJM. The training covered topics such as National Constitution, National Security, the Basic Law of Macau, policies of the Hengqin Guangdong-Macau Deep Cooperation Zone, Technology Development and Big Data. Participants also visited the Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, and the State Key Laboratory of Quality Research in Chinese Medicine at the University of Macau. Through enhancing knowledge on multiple fronts, the young people came to know more about the Mainland and the SAR, enabling them to further integrate into the overall national development plan.
