    Mr Suen then met Macao's Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture Mr Chui Sai-on and Director of Education and Youth Affairs Bureau Mr Sou Chiu-fai and discussed ways to foster further mutual co-operation in education.

    Mr Sou said his Macao counterparts were glad to have exchanges with Hong Kong. They also have internet access to the teaching materials on the website of Hong Kong Education Bureau's (EDB) Central Resources Centre and some of the teaching resources of the Hong Kong Education City.

    Mr Suen invited Macao officials of the Youth Affairs Bureau to visit EDB and schools in Hong Kong, to share with frontline principals and teachers each others' experience and expertise in education, as well as share views with EDB officials on information technology education, system and information management and educational statistics.

    The visit delegation led by Mr Suen included the Deputy Secretary of Education, Mr Michael Wong, and the Principal Assistant Secretary (Curriculum Development) Dr Chan Ka-Ki.
