    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
      (Redirected from Macao)
    Macau (Chinese: 澳門), also spelled Macao (play /məˈk/), is one of the two special administrative regions of the People’s Republic of China. (Hong Kong is the other.) Macau lies on the western side of the Pearl River Delta across from Hong-Kong which is to the east, bordering Guangdong province to the north and facing the South China Sea to the east and south.[6]
    The territory’s economy is heavily dependent on gambling and tourism, but also includes manufacturing.
    Macau is a former Portuguese colony, and is both the first and last European colony in China.[7][8] Portuguese traders first settled in Macau in the 16th century and subsequently administered the region until the handover on 20 December 1999. The Sino-Portuguese Joint Declaration and the Basic Law of Macau stipulate that Macau operates with a high degree of autonomy until at least 2049, fifty years after the transfer.[9]
    Under the policy of “one country, two systems“, the PRC’s Central People’s Government is responsible for the territory’s defense and foreign affairs, while Macau maintains its own legal systempolice force, monetary system, customs policy, and immigration policy. Macau participates in many international organizations and events that do not require members to possess national sovereignty.[9][10]According to The World Factbook, Macau has the second highest life expectancy in the world.[11]
