Pro-Beijing camp, pro-establishment camp or pro-China camp (Chinese: 親北京陣營, 建制派, 親中派) is a segment of Macanese society which supports the policies and views of the China and the Communist Party before and after the handover of Macau on 20 December 1999. The term can be used to identify politicians, political parties and individuals. Their rivals are the Pro-democracy camp.


Prior to handover[edit]

Some of the political groups within the pro-establishment camp, such as the Union for Development have had a long history of following the directions of the People's Republic of China and of loyalty to the Communist Party of China since the colonial period.


Pro-establishment members are united by the political ideology or economic policies of being closer to Beijing, as much out of pragmatism as of conviction, but vary on other issues within the context of Macau.

Members of the camp[edit]

Civil organisations, individual social activists, political parties, political groups and lawmakers who share a similar belief in democracy are all considered members of this camp. (number of Legislative Deputies shown in brackets)
