"The constitutional order of the Macao SAR, as prescribed by the constitution and the Basic Law, is respected and upheld," said the president at a celebration gathering marking the 15th anniversary of Macao's return.

He said that the central government's overall governing power is effectively exercised while the high degree of autonomy enjoyed by the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) is fully guaranteed.
