The F.I.T. Programme

Sands China strongly believes that the company is closely connected with the development of Macao, and has been devoting resources to the local community for more than a decade, and we are committed to promoting the development of local enterprises.

We first launched Sands China's Local Small, Medium and Micro Suppliers Support Programme in 2015, aiming to facilitate opportunities for local suppliers to meet international standard, in support of three types of local businesses jointly identified with the Macao Chamber of Commerce: small and micro enterprises, "made in Macao" companies, and Macao young entrepreneurs.

As part of that initiative, we further launched the F.I.T. programme for local Macao SME suppliers in April 2017. With this programme, the company seeks to increase its spend on all three aforementioned types of local suppliers.

F.I.T. is comprised of three pillars: Financial Support, Invitational Matching, and Training and Development.

• Financial Support

A Sands China Young Entrepreneur Advance Payment Programme has been created to help local young entrepreneurs who have limited financial capacity to run their business. It targets Macao young entrepreneurs with a staff size of 15 or below, providing them with a 30 per cent advance payment on purchase orders.

In April 2019, Sands China successfully cooperated with six local banks to launch a special financial support programme mainly for Sands China's SME suppliers. The participating banks are: Bank of China Macau Branch, ICBC Macau Branch, Bank of Communications Macau Branch, China Construction Bank Macau Branch, OCBC Wing Hang, and BNU.

• Invitational Matching

Sands China hosts targeted trade shows that invite local SMEs to go beyond simply meeting potential Sands China buyers. These invitational matching sessions take the process a step further by providing a platform for local SMEs to present and demonstrate their products and services to potential users and buyers at Sands China properties, with the company's full support. The goal is to enhance communication between vendors and users, and to improve the procurement success rate.

• Training and Development

The Sands China Procurement Academy, inaugurated in June 2017, aims to develop local SME suppliers by sharing business knowledge and skills, helping them gain experience and capacity to meet international standard. Four types of local SME suppliers are targeted: small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), micro-enterprises, Macao young entrepreneurs, and "Made-in-Macao" enterprises.

The academy offers tailor-made practical training modules to local SMEs, presenting them with a certificate upon graduating from the academy. Graduating suppliers are given preferential procurement under otherwise equal circumstances. The training programme is the first of its kind in the industry, with over 280 local SME suppliers having graduated to date.


The 10th intake of the academy will commence at the end of September 2021. Lecturers with various areas of expertise facilitate the modules, which cover 6 topics: quality assurance, Macau labor law fundamentals, supplier code of conduct, procurement contract basics, procurement process and system overview, and logistics management.

  • Enrollment Period: from now till 10 p.m. on 30 Aug 2021
  • Start Date: End of Sep 2021; six lectures in total, one lecture per week
  • Location: The Venetian Macao's Adelson Advanced Education Centre
  • Capacity: 60 pax
  • Enrollment Method: email the following information 1) Company Name 2) Contact Person 3) Contact Number
