Economy and infrastructure of Macau[edit]

Economy of Macau – Macau's economy has grown dramatically since the opening up of its casino industry to foreign competition in 2001. With the influx of affluent Chinese tourists in the region since its handover in 1999, foreign investments in Macau has transformed the territory into one of the world's largest gaming centres. In 2007, Macau surpassed Las Vegas to be the world's biggest gambling centre.[7] Tourism hence plays a big part of the city's economy, especially since the relaxation of Chinese travel restrictions. In 2015, this city of 646,800 hosted nearly 30.7 million visitors, 67% of which were from mainland China. [5]
