Macau, December 13, 2016 – The “Third Wynn Local SME Procurement Partnership Meeting – Business Matching Session for Small and Micro Enterprises, ‘Made in Macau’ Enterprises and Young Entrepreneurs” co-organized by Wynn Resorts (Macau) S.A. and the Macao Chamber of Commerce, alongside the Launching Ceremony for Macau Procurement Platform Mobile App “ChoicePro”, were held successfully at the Grand Theater and Meeting Rooms of Wynn Palace at 11am today. The event received an overwhelming response, attracting over 300 local SMEs to participate in the meeting.
In response to the Macau SAR Government’s policy of giving priority to local suppliers and cultivating local SMEs, this partnership meeting targeted three major types of enterprises, including Small and Micro Enterprises, "Made in Macau" Enterprises and Macau Young Entrepreneurs. To increase the effectiveness of the meeting, representatives of the Procurement Department and other relevant departments at Wynn met with all participating SMEs so that they can further understand the procurement procedures and requirements of Wynn. Representatives of local banks also attended the meeting to provide suitable business information for local SMEs as needed.
The other highlight of the day was the Launching Ceremony for Macau Procurement Platform Mobile App “ChoicePro”. Commissioned by the Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Center (CPTTM), the “Macau Procurement Platform Mobile App Design Competition” was held previously with the aim of developing an innovative and convenient mobile application that could connect local SMEs and large enterprises. The competition was won by Blupurple Interactive Media Ltd., one of the local small and micro enterprises that originally developed a procurement platform mobile application “ChoicePro”, who were presented with the first prize at the award presentation ceremony in July. “ChoicePro” is now available as a free download for both iOS and Android devices. Large enterprises can leverage this platform to centralize the release of procurement information, while local SMEs can obtain suitable information more quickly and easily. All large enterprises and SMEs in Macau are welcome to join “ChoicePro” as participating enterprises to further promote business collaboration, bringing more business opportunities to local companies.
