On Dec. 19th, 2009, president Hu Jintao announced that a pair of giant pandas will be given to Macau for their 10th Anniversary. Soon afterwards, the state organized a task force to make the subsequent and necessary arrangements. Heading up the task force is Hua Jian, the deputy director of the Hong Kong and Macau Office of the State Council. Vice-heads of the task force are Chen Limin, director of the Macau Government and Legal Department, andYin Hong, the vice director of the State Forestry Bureau. Other members include the Hong Kong and Macau Office of the State Council, the State Forestry Bureau, the Liaison Office of the Central Government in the Special Administrative Region of Macau, the Marco SAR government, and the Sichuan Government. After looking at the overall status of giant pandas in captivity, the State Forestry Bureau decided the animals will come from the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. After this decision was made, a team of 9 experts at the base was established to choose the individual animals. They will look at age, physical condition, behavior, psychology, and genetics of the animals in order to choose the best matched pair.
