Why Macao?
Favourable Business Environment
According to an evaluation carried out by the World Trade Organization (WTO), Macao’s trade and investment regime remains one of the most open in the world. Its GDP growth is among the highest (Real GDP Growth Rate was 20.7% in 2011). Macao’s advantages are characterized by its free port policy, separate tariff region, simple and low taxation system, with a Complementary Tax rate of not more than 12%, widespread international market network, close relationship with the Portuguese-speaking countries and the implementation of the Mainland and Macao Closer Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA).

Close Links with Pan-Pearl River Delta Region on Environmental Protection Agenda
In recent years, Macao has strengthened its partnership with the provincial/regional governments of the Pan-Pearl River Delta Region to advance the environmental agenda. This has given rise to more opportunities in the environmental industry in this region.

Environmental Protection and Energy Conservation Fund
In 2011 the Macao SAR Government established the “Environmental Protection and Energy Conservation Fund” (with a reserve of MOP200 million or US$25 million in Phase 1, till the end of 2012) to provide subsidies to Macao businesses and associations for the acquisition of eco-friendly and energy efficient products and equipment. Each approved applicant is entitled to receive a subsidy equal to 80% of the total value purchased with an upper limit of MOP500,000 (around US$62,500). This has created a great incentive for sellers and technology providers of environmentally friendly products to tap into the Macao market.
