Macao Post and Telecommunications Bureau will issue the stamp theme “110th Anniversary of the Macao Chamber of Commerce” on 1st March, 2023. This is of the same theme after the issue “Centenary of the Macao Chamber of Commerce” in 2013. The “Macao Chamber of Commerce” was officially established in 1913. It was also approved for registration by the then Chinese Government Department of Industry and Commerce under the name of “Macao Overseas Chinese General Chamber of Commerce”. In 1916, it was officially designated the “Macao Chinese General Chamber of Commerce” (also known as “Macao Chamber of Commerce”).


For over 100 years, the Chamber’s accomplishments were not only made by the members’ dedication to upholding “one country, two systems” and the loyalty and commitment of uniting business and industry, but also their love of the country, the nation, the society and also the trust and support of people from all walks of life. The Government of the Macao Special Administrative Region awarded the Chamber the “Medal of Merit – Industry and Commerce” and the “Golden Lotus Medal of Honour” in recognition of its contributions.


The stamps depict the contributions and achievements of the Chamber in promoting the development of Macao over 100 years, including uniting the industrial and commercial sectors, offering recommendations to the government, fostering the development of talent, serving the community and integrating into the national development.
