Macao, Guangdong to Jointly Tackle Salinity Crisis
Adjust font size:

Macao Special Administrative Region (MSAR) and Guangdong Province are to form a joint task force in a bid to solve the current salinity crisis.


A press release issued yesterday by Macao's Information Bureau said Chief Executive Edmund Ho Hau Wah and Zhang Dejiang, secretary of Guangdong Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), agreed to set up the team during their meeting earlier the day.


They held the meeting in Beijing on the sidelines of the Fourth Session of the 10th National People's Congress (NPC).


Macao, counting the water supply on Xijiang River that is originated in Guangdong, has long been enduring the salinity crisis caused by the intake of the seawater during the winter season.


However, the salinity crisis this year is the worst in history.
