On 9 Jan 2019, Mr. Cui Shi-an, Chief Executive of the Macau SAR presented the “Medal of Merit on Education” to Dr. Jonathan Choi for his distinguished contribution to the education and cultural development of Macau.
As early as the 1980s, the Choi’s family and Sunwah Group set up the Choi’s Education and Cultural Foundation in Macau to establish schools of all levels including kindergartens, middle schools and universities. In 1997, the Xin Hua Primary School and kindergarten were established. In 2000, in complementing the Macau Government’s education through train policy, the Foundation continued to establish the Xin Hua Middle School and Evening Schools so that students could study in the same school chain.
In 2010, Dr. Choi and the family foundations donated MOP 30 million to build a new residential college named “ Choi Kai Yau College” in the new campus of the University of Macau. It further helps promote the international positon and standard of the higher education of Macau.
