Education[edit] In Macau, Chui attended Lingnan High School and then finished high school at Hawaiian Mission Academy
Hawaiian Mission Academy
in Honolulu
before pursuing his post-secondary education. Chui obtained his university training in the United States where he obtained his various degrees:

Bachelor's degree in City Hygiene Administration from California State University, Sacramento[1] PhD in Public Health at the University of Oklahoma[1] Registered member of the American Association of Public Hygiene Registered member of the American Association for the Management of Medical Affairs

He was guest professor at the Huanan Teachers Training University. Due to studying in the United States at a younger age, Chui did not have the opportunity to study Mandarin, and thus does not speak it well. This was evident when he made his oath of acceptance as the Chief Executive of Macao in front of President Hu Jintao. Chief Executive of Macau[edit] Prior to his current position, Chui served as a member of the Fifth Legislative Assembly of the Macau
Government. In June 2009 Chui declared himself the sole candidate for Macau's chief executive election. He was nominated by 286 members of the 300-member election committee. On election day, 26 July, 282 committee members voted for Chui (14 blank, 4 abstention). He assumed his new role as Chief Executive of Macau
Chief Executive of Macau
in December 2009.[2][3][4][5] List of policy addresses[edit]

Scandals[edit] Chui has been linked to several scandals during his time as a minister of Edmund Ho's administration.[6] Most notably, the East Asian Games in 2005 were run under Chui's portfolio and put him in the midst of the Ao Man Long scandal. The games ran over budget by 70%. Ao allegedly received a MOP50 million (US$6.2 million) bribe in connection with the construction contract for the games' centerpiece, the Macau
Dome indoor arena. Overall, that project wound up costing MOP640 million, MOP285 million over budget. As a result, he was extremely unpopular amongst the pro-democracy camp even before he was elected as the chief executive.[7][8] In 2016, Chui was caught up in allegations of transferring Macau's reserves to the mainland. He was accused of favouritism after the Macau
Foundation – a quasi-official foundation of which he is chairman and of which his brother heads the supervisory board – donated 100 million yuan ($15.4 million) of public money to Jinan University
Jinan University
in Guangzhou, of which he is deputy head of the board. The Macanese government said that the donation was made in return for China’s long-standing support to the SAR.[9] Honours[edit]
