Developing the capability of scientific thinking: On Macao's scientific research since its return to China

Science & Technology Review. 2019, 37 (23): 11-16. ;  doi: 10.3981/j.issn.1000-7857.2019.23.002

Abstract ( 49 )
One purpose of scientific research is often considered as how it can be applied to commercialization, however, an equally important (if not more) consequence of research is the ability for researchers to think scientifically. This is especially important for Macao, a highly developed capitalistic gaming city. Since its return to China in 1999, the Macao government and the public community at large have made tremendous efforts to initiate scientific research and have implemented legal, organizational, and resource measures to systematically support scientific research. Today's Macao has attracted research talents and achieved new productivity in research and development. While the investment of scientific research by Macao has not yet resulted in a large-scale high-tech industry, the development of scientific research has certainly helped Macao residents, particularly the younger generation, to pursue long-term prosperity and stability for Macao.

Abstract ( 65 )
Currently Macao SAR is well-developed, which was handed over to Mainland China 20 years ago. However, this has led to the rapid increase of transportaions, which has in turn caused the serious traffic problem in Macao. In this paper, the traffic problem is analyzed, which includes the situation of buses, motorcycles, and taxes. The current situation of light rail, roundabout, excavation, and cross-sea-bridge is introduced and its influence on the traffic is discussed. Solutions to the traffic problem is proposed regarding to city plan and smart city strategies. Moreover, the future transportation development of Macao is also studied.

Abstract ( 38 )
The 85 km2 of sea area that the Chinese central government has empowered the government of the Macao Special Administrative Region to manage provides a strong support for the moderately development of Macao's economy. This paper discusses the importance of the sea to Macao's moderately diversified economic development in terms of expanding development space, providing resources, supporting industries, and promoting cooperation. It also analyzes the development foundation of Macao's related industries, the policy advantages of the central government in supporting Macao's development of the marine industries, Macao's own "free economy", and the "bridge" advantages of Comunidade dos Países de Língua Portuguesa. Based on this, the paper puts forward a strategic path to promote the diversified development of Macao's economy through the sea:to connect with national development strategy and the local social and economic development needs, to make two plans for the development of Macao's sea area and industry; to establish the marine cooperation platform with three regions:Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, southern marine economic circle urban agglomeration, and Comunidade dos Países de Língua Portuguesa through regional linkage.

Abstract ( 32 )
Shortage of talents in Macao has caused great constraints on Macao's deep participation in the construction of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. In the article we discusse the need for Macao to participate in and contribute to the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and its new requirements for Macao's talent operation. We analyze the main causes of the shortage, including endogenous shortage, poor structure, conservative talent immigration policies, etc. Then we comb the efforts made by Macao SAR government to solve this problem. Finally, we put forward five suggestions, namely, formulating a long-term talent development plan, establishing a talent sharing mechanism in the Greater Bay Area, optimizing the introduction system of professionals, increasing local talent cultivation and overseas talent return, and reforming talent operation institutions and mechanisms.

Abstract ( 47 )
The paper overviews Macao's development of innovative technology in the 20 years since it returned to China, and evaluates the ability ranking of innovative technology of Macao in the global city system and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area based on the evaluation index system. The study discovers that there is still significant room for Macao to improve its development ranking of innovative technology. The current problem lies in the insufficiency of industrialization of technology, which is mainly caused by the insufficiency of achievement conversion function of scientific research platform, lack of enterprises with innovation ability, low proportion of R&D with respect to GDP, and lack of profession institutions with science and technology management function. This paper puts forward the countermeasures to promote the development of innovative technology and industry of Macao, such as combining with the construction of international technology innovation center in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, focusing on innovative technology, strengthening scientific research platform function, cultivation and introduction of scientific research talents, stimulating innovation vitality with financial market, setting technology innovation bureau to coordinate the development of innovative technology and industrialization, and expanding the fields of innovative technology.

Currently the types of them are still not complete, the relevant area of science and technology coverage is limited, and the distribution among different types is unbalanced. However their activities have already covered a wide range of fields, from academic exchanges, scientific research, popular science to talent education, rights maintenance and policy participation. They also undertake a variety of social functions. The sci-tech societies of Macao are established in accordance with law, they implement self-management and have high professional authority and social recognition.

Abstract ( 82 )
In the context of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area development, Macao's role in China's opening up and development has transferred from "the precise connector" to "the precise bonnecting function". Exerting and promoting "the precise connecting function" is an important part of Macao's long-term development strategy, and is the fundamental assurance of "nation's needs, Macao's specialities" and practice of "one country, two systems" in China's new development era. To meet the challenges from land, industries, regional cooperation, talents and so forth, Macao needs to strengthen the advantages and regional coordination, and to exert strategy of precise connection, precise striving, precise governance and smart growth. By doing so, Macao can promote "the precise connecting function" to a high level, comprehensively and deeply participate in the development of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and can connect to national development.
