History[edit]

The office was established on January 18, 2000. This superseded the former branch of the Xinhua News Agency. The office is located in Xinhua Building; located in the southern foothills of the Guia Hill. The new building opened on January 16, 2010 at Freguesia da Sé.[4][5]

China maintained relations in the then Portuguese territory through the former Nanguang trading company. It is now known as China Central Enterprise Nam Kwong (Group) Co., Ltd.[6] After the handover of Macau to Chinese sovereignty, Xinhua News Agency, the official news agency of the Chinese government in the territory changed its structure.[3] A liaison office was established and the news agency Xinhua split into a separately administered entity.[3]
