The contest’s theme of this year’s competition “Professional English for the Conference and Exhibition Industry” aims to encourage the future professionals of the Macao travel and tourism-related service sector to enhance their English skills, to support the sustainable development of Macao as the world center of tourism and leisure. It is also helpful to horn participants’ film-making skills to enrich their multimedia practices.
FHTM keeps encouraging students to actively participate in various competitions and activities, contributing to cultivating outstanding talents with a combination of theory and practice, and winning glory for the University and Macao.
