Added On March 22, 2015

Two pairs of giant pandas have been selected as final gift candidates to the Macao Special Administrative Region.

The selection came after Chinese President Xi Jinping said the central government would confer a pair of giant pandas to Macao on the 15th anniversary of Macao's return to the motherland in December 2014.

An expert team has been set up to select the final pair of black and white bears. 

According to one expert, the selection process is very strict.
