Macau: No More Casino?

The Macau Chief Executive Edmund Ho claimed that the government would suspend the development of gambling industry. Lang qing felt that such claim was just political slogan as most of the Casino projects had been approved and the gambling industry would continue to double or triple its growth in the coming few years [zh].


  • I can´t see it. I went to Macau recently and the place has gone crazy. It used to be a place to go and relax from hong Kong, but now it´s a building site. The Chinese government must be making a fortune in gambling taxes.
