Report published by the European Commission and the High Representative for Foreign Policy covering developments in 2018 in relation to the trade, economic and cultural relations between the European Union (EU) and Macao.
The European Union has vowed to closely follow political and economic developments in the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) ever since it was handed over to China in 1999, in the framework of the 'one country, two systems' principle. In line with the commitment given to the European Parliament, an annual report is issued on developments in Macao. This is the 21st report, covering developments in 2018.
In 2018, the EU and Macao maintained solid trade relations and enjoyed a good level of cooperation. The report concludes that in 2018, the ‘one country, two systems' principle continued in general to work well, although political opposition was found to be limited and civil society not very vocal.
