The grassroots New Macau Association (NMA) urged the government yesterday to halt its cooperation with Alibaba Group until the details of its “Framework Agreement of Strategic Cooperation on Smart City Development” are available for “public scrutiny”.

The government signed the deal with Alibaba last Friday to develop Macau into a smart city, by using Alibaba’s big data processing capabilities to enhance the quality of the city’s public services, according to a government statement.

Chief Executive Fernando Chui Sai On and Alibaba Executive Chairman Jack Ma Yun attended the agreement signing ceremony at Government Headquarters.
