Macau’s Role in the China—EU Context
Macau, a small city on the South China coast, almost invisible on the world map, has almost been forgotten by scholars, businessmen and politicians the world over, since its role as China’s most important entrepot in the south has been taken over by Hong Kong after the Opium War in 1842, and for over a century it remained more or less a ‘shadow’ of Hong Kong in terms of finance, trade, manufacturing and tourism. The only attraction left in the minds of the people was Macau as the Monte Carlo of the East with a strong Mediterranean flavour, a city of gambling.
