The city’s Chief Executive (CE) Fernando Chui San On met a team of 22 experts on Wednesday to discuss the optimisation of Macau’s response measures for any public emergencies.
The team is coordinated by the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council and the National Commission for Disaster Reduction.
Invited by the MSAR government, the team is to help Macau to conclude the relief work phase of the city’s management of the aftermath of Typhoon Hato, and to analyse the city’s efforts in search and rescue as well as relief matters.
Aside from members relating to disaster reduction and meteorological matters, the team also consists of experts in crisis prevention and in mitigating the impact of disasters, as well as advisers on emergency alert systems, water resources, architecture, electricity supply, telecommunications and firefighting.
The CE said the meeting marked an important step for the city to lay out its short-, medium- and long-term plans for response to natural disasters.
Earlier this week, the CE held talks with authorities from the Guangdong government regarding the eventual construction of a tidal wall to prevent flooding in the Inner Harbour area.
