Back to Asia

Macau, a small territory on the southern coast of China, was administered by Portugal until 1999 when it became a Special Administrative Region of China.

Under the "One Country, Two Systems" policy, Macau retains its own legal system, currency, customs policy, cultural delegation, international sport teams, and immigration laws. China represents Macao only in foreign affairs and defense.

Macau's biggest attraction is its gambling industry and casinos. The most popular game is baccarat, which generates over two thirds of the gaming industry's gross receipts.

For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on Macau.
