"MGM will optimize the development of cultural tourism in Macao, alongside many diversified offerings, reinforcing Macao's position as a world center of tourism and leisure," she added.

Eric Berti, Consul General of France in Hong Kong & Macao SARs, said at the ceremony that this exhibition brought over 250 works together for the first time from French museums and private collections, among them remarkable pieces from Musee Notre-Dame de Fourviere in Lyon, a 1930's Zadkine sculpture, jewels from the Boucheron collection, and vintage pieces by Yves Saint Laurent.
