Macao media Sunday paid particular attention to the neighboring Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) which is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its return to the motherland.
Macao Daily News, the leading local Chinese-language newspaper, said in its editorial that Hong Kong has shrugged off all vexing predictions made 10 years ago when it returned to the motherland.
The successful implementation of "one country, two systems" boasts a miracle in the history of human civilization, said the editorial.
Jornal Va Kio, another major Chinese-language newspaper, in a column article also praised the achievements Hong Kong has made since its return to China on July 1, 1997.
The doom-telling of "Hong Kong's death" after return has been proved wrong, the newspaper quoted a Time magazine article as saying.
Tai Chung Pou, also local Chinese-language newspaper, said in a commentary that Hong Kong's international standing as a financial, trade and shipping center has been more solid since its return to the motherland.
Other newspapers in Macao all dedicated pages to top stories and photos on Hong Kong's return anniversary on Sunday.
