Prof. Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa met Bishop Stephen Lee and USJ’s senior management



Prof. Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, President of the Republic of Portugal, took the time to receive the Chancellor, Bishop Lee, and the senior management of the University of Saint Joseph, during his brief visit to Macao.  In his speech, at the official reception that followed, President Rebelo de Sousa called attention to how China and Portugal met in Macao, well before they met in either Beijing or Lisbon.  In fact, he added, the city has for 500 years hosted a persistent dialogue between these two peoples and their longstanding cultures, while respecting their differences.  So, as we look to the future, schools and universities are playing a vital role in that ongoing exchange – and he singled out the Portuguese School of Macao and the University of Saint Joseph.
