Official Announcement from Hong Kong American Chamber of Commerce
On Saturday December 7, AmCham Chairman Robert Grieves and AmCham President Tara Joseph were separately prevented from entering Macau as they were headed to the annual AmCham Macau Ball.
Both Robert and Tara were given no reason for why they were delayed. After several hours, and after having to sign a statement that they voluntarily agreed not to pursue entry into Macau, they both returned to Hong Kong without any difficulty.
We are puzzled as to why this happened, given this was simply a social occasion to celebrate AmCham Macau’s annual gathering.
Moreover the American Chamber is a business chamber and has been consistent in its support for the development of business in the Greater Bay Area.
We hope that this is just an over reaction to current events and that international business can constructively forge ahead.
