A symposium marking the 20th anniversary of the implementation of the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) Basic Law is held Tuesday morning at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

The event, held by the General Office of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), aims to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Macao's return to China.

Chief Executive of the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) Chui Sai On gave a speech on the symposium, attributing Macao's remarkable achievement and rapid development to the full implementation of Macao Basic Law and "One Country, Two Systems."

In his speech, Chui reviewed Macao's all-round development made over the past 20 years since returning to the motherland, saying that Macao had benefited from the advantages of China's rapid development and made use of it for faster and quality growth of the Macao SAR.

Chui thanked the strong support of the central government while highlighting the importance of upholding Macao Basic Law and "One Country, Two Systems" in pacing up social development.

He viewed the Macao Basic Law as a strong legal guarantee for Macao's high degree of autonomy and status as an SAR, and vowed to continue safeguarding the Macao Basic Law while stepping up efforts to advance the principle of "One Country, Two Systems" with Macao's characteristics.

Zhang Xiaoming, director of the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council, echoed Chui's remarks, reiterating that the "One Country, Two Systems" principle, the Constitution and the Macao Basic Law bring long-term prosperity and social stability to the Macao SAR.

He confirmed the great efforts made by all sectors in the community in fully implementing the "One Country, Two Systems," calling the principle a guarantee for the SAR's remarkable social development and steady progress made in all areas.
