Macau’s Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture, Mr Alexis Tam Chon Weng, was on hand to launch this year’s edition of the Macau Special Olympics Masters of Golf which will be held from 20 to 25 April at Caesars Golf.

Mr Alexis Tam reaffirmed the government’s commitment to ensure the event, which is the biggest of its kind for mentally challenged athletes, remains successful.

President of the Charity Association of Macau Business Readers, Mr Paulo A Azevedo, said “This is a multicultural, multi-social programme with a strong component of sport, of art and culture that is unique in the world and we’re very happy to be able to continue to organize it, bringing together private institutions, the Macau government and so many volunteers of the Macau society.”

National Director of Macau Special Olympics, Mr Hetzer Siu, added “Our athletes have been working hard and the tournament is a great opportunity for them to interact in social and cultural events with international youth as well as members of Macau society.”

There are already 16 countries confirmed to take part in this year’s event including Chinese Taipei, Denmark, Great Britain, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Lichtenstein, Macau, Malaysia, Switzerland, Spain, South Korea, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
