Summary:
This is a research report analyzing on how to legalize the regulation system of the gaming industry in Macao from various new perspectives. As pointed by the authors, the traditional regulation of the gaming industry has been outdated and cannot fulfill the need of the new development. Due to its obvious malfunction and the practical problems arisen, the regulation itself has become an obstacle against the healthy development of the gaming industry in Macao and it has also hindered the progress of the economy diversification of the region. The Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau of the Macao SAR, being the official monitoring body, can hardly take up its responsibilities due to the absence of independence and authoritativeness. After a thorough analysis, the authors finally drew out a train of thought for the legalization path of the regulation system of the Macao gaming industry. It was suggested that the Macao SAR Government should adjust the overall regulation system of the gaming industry by insuring its legalization and perfectibility. The report has its practical significance in its suggestion to the Macao SAR Government on how to better the regulation and monitoring system of the rapidly developing gaming industry.
