BEIJING, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- Premier Li Keqiang on Tuesday met with Chui Sai On, chief executive of the Macao special administrative region, pledging full support for the region's lawful administration.
Li praised the regions' achievement in boosting economy and improving people's livelihood as "positive", saying that the overall situation in Macao is good.
Li said that the central government will uphold the "one country, two systems" policy and fully support governance of Chui and the Macao government in accordance with law.
The decision on "comprehensively deepening reform," which was announced after a plenum of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China in November, is expected to bring more development opportunities for Macao, the premier said.
More efforts should be made by people from all walks of life in Macao in order to prompt the region's sustainable development, as well as contribute to the whole country's modernization drive, Li added.
