MOP 55 million in purchases from 74 new local suppliers since July 2015
Sands China’s Local Supplier Support Programme is focused on three types of local businesses, identified in collaboration with the Macao Chamber of Commerce: small and micro companies, “Made in Macao” companies and Macao young entrepreneurs.
Sands China’s pioneering long-term initiative was the first programme of its kind in Macao, announced jointly last year with the Macao Chamber of Commerce. Response to the programme has been positive, with many cases of successful results for SMEs working with Sands China.
Information about Sands China’s Local Supplier Support Programme is now available at the website of the Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Centre (CPTTM) at http://cms.cpttm.org.mo. The site provides Macao SMEs with procurement information for the city’s gaming operators, giving the SMEs an opportunity to connect with them.
Sands China’s Local Supplier Support Programme is in line with the Macao government’s initiative to “buy local” and demonstrates Sands China’s commitment to supporting local enterprises as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility efforts. It is part of Sands China’s supplier relationship management strategy, which guides the company’s long-standing effort to support local suppliers, whom it views as its strategic partners.
