Courts in the Chinese mainland and Macao will increase judicial exchanges and cooperation to support the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area development, according to a meeting between the Supreme People’s Court and the Court of Final Appeal of Macao on Nov 15.

At the meeting, Zhou Qiang, chief justice and president of the SPC, gave a positive comment on the implementation of the “one country, two systems” policy in Macao and said the policy plays a role in Macao’s prosperity.

Sam Hou Fai, president of the Court of Final Appeal of Macao, said there have been rich achievements in judicial cooperation between the two sides for the past 40 years under the reform and opening-up policy.

The two sides agreed that courts at various levels in the Chinese mainland should increase judicial exchanges and cooperation to create a sound legal environment for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area development and offer judicial supports and guarantees for the implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative.

The delegates spoke highly of the innovative development and informationization of courts in the Chinese mainland and showed their willingness to have a closer relationship with the mainland courts.

The 12-member Macao judicial delegation also visited courts in Guizhou province from Nov 10 to 16.
