Macau government says payment of debts to UNESCO is ongoing

The payment of the debt of around 25,000 Macau patacas to UNESCO is being processed. Two-year contributions to the United Nations are overdue, but the MSAR paid an equal amount for the World Heritage Cities Organization’s annual fee.

It is uncertain when it will be done, but payment of Macao’s debts to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is underway. “The payment is in process,” replied the office of the secretary for Social Affairs and Culture to HM. At stake are 3,118 US dollars (about 25,000 patacas) that should have been paid by the MSAR as a contribution to the regular budget as an associate member of the organization.

The Tribuna de Macau newspaper reported that contributions were missing in June. Since then, UNESCO’s weekly reports do not indicate changes in the situation in Macau, the last payment of which was made in February 2018. The missing 25,000 patacas correspond to the sum of the 2019 and this year’s annuities.
