MACAO, Nov 19 (Xinhua) -- Chief Executive of Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) Edmund Ho Hau Wah has said he had no intention to return to business or work for any organizations after completing his tenure, the Macao Daily News reported Thursday.

Ho was quoted as saying that he wanted to enjoy life without much work after a decade in office. Therefore, he had no intention to return to the business sector or work for any organization.

Ho made the remarks when meeting reporters from local Chinese, Portuguese and English press after a session at the Legislative Assembly, where he reviewed the policies implemented in the Fiscal Year 2009 and presented the budget of the Fiscal Year 2010.

He said that he felt grateful to the work in the past 10 years and he had no intention to work for the government in the future.

According to law, in the first year after leaving their posts, former principal officials would not be allowed to take on any jobs, except those given by the Central Government or the SAR Government.

In the second and third year after leaving office, former principal officials could only work upon approval of the incumbent Chief Executive and a string of procedures.
