Tourism in Macau Under Review

Tourism in Macau Under Review Macau Social Affairs Secretary Alex Tam revealed concerns about the high volume of mainland visitors to Macau and now Chief Executive Chui Sai On advised Tan to review the situation.

The review will be conducted from 2003 to the present.

Macau's chief executive spoke to Beijing media saying that the outcome of the review will be turned over to China's central government.

Tan’s concerns are for Macau residents and the negative effects of visitors on their lives so a beefed up visa process may be in store.
  • Wow, I would have thought Macau and Hong Kong would welcome as many visitors as possible to come over there and blow their cash in their casinos. Thinking of the effect on the local residents is an admirable endeavour and certainly worthwhile, but a significant drop in the numbers of tourists coming there would surely have a detrimental effect on the local economy, which could be even worse for the residents surely???
  • I thought that I recently read that getting a visa for Macau was already a problem and that is why many people go to Hong Kong and get on a gambling boat that goes into international waters. If their revenues are down, the last thing they need to do is make it even more difficult for people to go there to gamble.
  • Well I must say that I'm shocked with what I've read right now. I don't see how someone will decide to "close the door" for the visitors. That is not possible in 21st century, when we all (or almost all) live in freedom and in democratic society, where people are free to do what they want with their lives (as far as that is not braking some law). I really can't understand why Macau should reduce the tourist that are visiting them when every country, city or place wants to be visited from more tourist and to show their beauties and culture to how much as possible people.
