Gaming, Governance and Public Policy in Macao

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter reflects on the decline of traditional associations, the success of representatives of gaming interests in recent Legislative Assembly elections and the emergence of other new groups in the political arena. Under conditions in which rapid growth is causing social problems and with a casino-driven economy which has specific needs, the ability of the Macao government to deliver goods and services effectively and efficiently has become an issue of major concern.

Keywords:   Macao, politics, traditional associations, Legislative Assembly, social problems, casinos, economy, government
