In the aftermath of typhoon Hato, the entire city is committed to various tasks for restoration and recovery from the catastrophe. On the other hand, the related infrastructure and facilities required for fireworks displays have suffered damages, while different departments and entities supporting the fireworks event are now dedicated to tackling the aftermath. Considering the above circumstances and various factors, Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) announced today (26 August) that the 29th Macao International Fireworks Display Contest is officially canceled. This arrangement is expected to affect visitors and members of the private sectors concerned, whose kind understanding is deeply appreciated.
In addition, the Fireworks Carnival, Trophy Design Contest, Photo Contest and Student Drawing Contest of the 29th Macao International Fireworks Display Contest are canceled in accord.
