Welcome to the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute’s website!
Macao is a free port with simple and low taxation regime, and it is a hub where eastern and western cultures meet. The city boasts various business advantages such as its close ties and interaction with overseas Chinese entrepreneurs and Portuguese-speaking countries, favourable investment environment and well-equipped convention and exhibition industry.
Currently, Macao is working towards becoming a World Centre of Tourism and Leisure as well as an Commercial and Trade Co-operation Service Platform between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries. By fully utilising its unique strengths, pro-actively integrating itself into the country’s momentum and contributing to the development of the Guangdong-Macao In-Depth Co-operation Zone in Hengqin, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the “Belt and Road” Initiative, Macao is committed to creating more opportunities for local and overseas investors.
In order to optimise the city’s industrial structure, the Macao SAR Government adopts the “1+4” adequate diversification development strategy: “1” refers to the goal of being a World Centre of Tourism and Leisure by nurturing the diversified development of tourism and leisure and the development of an excellent, dedicated and strong integrated tourism and leisure industry; “4” refers to the four key industries to be constantly developed, namely, the Big Health industry, modern financial services, high technology, conferences and exhibitions combined with commerce and trade, and culture and sports.
