The 11th International Conference on the Legal Reforms of Macau in the Global Context saw a range of key legal issues facing the Asian gaming hub discussed in detail.
What is the future of the industry that makes Macau the gambling capital of the world? What model do we want for future decades? Is the continuation of today’s model justified? How do we reconcile quality of life for Macau’s population – partly sustained by the gaming industry, with increasing competition from alternative Southeast Asian markets? And what do operators want from Macau after 2022?”
These are not just some of the key questions the industry asks itself every day; they are also questions formulated by Nuno Sardinha da Mata, lawyer and partner of C&C Advogados, in a paper titled “The enigma of the sphinx and the Macau gaming law future” presented during the 11th International Conference on the Legal Reforms of Macau in the Global Context at the University of Macau on 25 and 26 October.
