Sands China Receives Second Batch of Goods Purchased from Guizhou's Congjiang County

Part of the company’s poverty relief efforts in Guizhou



(Macao, Nov. 26, 2018) – Sands China Ltd. received its second batch of products from Guizhou's Congjiang County Nov. 26 at The Venetian® Macao’s loading bay. Sands China was the first integrated tourism and leisure enterprise in Macao to purchase goods from the county, and with this shipment is now the first to purchase its fresh produce as well.

Sands China’s procurement efforts with Congjiang aim to support the impoverished county, in response to the Macao SAR government’s call for targeted poverty alleviation in mainland China.

Initiated by the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM), the procurement drive seeks to strengthen cooperation between enterprises in Congjiang County and Macao, and to support mainland China’s nationwide poverty alleviation work.

This latest shipment comprised 5,000 kilograms of mandarin oranges, 300 boxes of chili sauce and 600 boxes of bottled water. The goods were purchased from Congjiang through local Macao SME suppliers Produtos Alimentares de Restauracao Man Seng Limitada and Tak Seng Hang. Sands China will continue to explore and expand the range of agricultural products purchased from Congjiang in the future.

“We were very pleased with the quality of the goods from our first purchase, and are pleased to continue procuring from Congjiang County,” said Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd. “By taking the lead in supporting the government’s procurement drive from Congjiang, we hope to contribute to the development of the county and we look forward to continuing our support. Our thanks go to the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Macao SAR and the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute for their support and leadership.”
