A signing ceremony for the production and sales of Maoming lychees was also held at the event. Macao Sunho Trading signed strategic cooperation agreements with several Maoming companies. The cooperation between the Maoming lychee industry and the distributors in the Macao market will help enhance the influence of the Maoming lychee brand in Macao.
Lin Weiquan, president of the Macao-Maoming Overseas Friendship Association, said that he hoped this event will promote the development of "lychee + industry" integration, broaden sales channels of Maoming lychees, as well as expand their brand influence in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to bolster economic development and cultural tourism in Maoming and Macao.
