MACAO, Dec. 20 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao Sunday met with Fernando Chui Sai On, the newly sworn-in chief executive (CE) of the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR).

During the meeting, Hu congratulated Chui on his taking the office of Macao SAR's third-term CE, saying the central government places extensive trust in Chui and the people of Macao have high expectations of their new CE as well.

He expressed his hope that Chui can successfully carry out his task and be worthy of the great trust.

Meanwhile, He said that the SAR government, under the leadership of Chui, must unswervingly implement the principles of "one country, two systems", "Macao people governing Macao" and a high degree of autonomy, and carry out its policies in strict accordance with the Basic Law.

Chui's swearing-in ceremony, administered by President Hu Jintao, was held earlier Sunday morning, which is part of the 10th anniversary celebration gathering of Macao's return to the motherland and the third-term government inauguration of the Macao SAR.

Chui said that he is grateful that the central government gave so much concern and support to Macao.

Chui also promised that he will keep his task in mind and scrupulously abide by his duty, leading the SAR government and the people of Macao to push forward Macao's development in a better and faster way.
