We are pleased to announce that Manuela António – Lawyers and Notaries signed this Wednesday an agreement with Jingsh Law Firm and expects to start operating in Hengqin at the beginning of next year. “We are going to start prospecting the space and we intend to open the office at the beginning of next year, first quarter, just after the Chinese New Year. That is our objective”, said Manuela António in a statement to the newspaper TRIBUNA DE MACAU.
This partnership comes after the Central Government’s wish to boost the role of Hengqin and Macau in the Greater Bay Area Project and it aims to make use of the proximity of the two locations. Manuela António firmly believes this partnership will benefit from the development of certain segments of the financial sector in Macau, which will promote business between Macau and its counterparties in China.
“Our hope is that, with this connection, we can enhance the image of Macau in Hengqin and that Hengqin can enhance its image in Macau” Manuela António stated, reinforcing the idea that one of the current goals of the Government is to “expand the financial area of Macau”.
