General Info
Geography l Government l History l People

Macau is officially a Chinese territory under Portuguese administration. It has its own government structure, which is endowed with political and legislative power and enshrined in the Organic Statue of Macau.

The Governor is appointed by the President of the Portuguese Republic and is aided by an Advisory Council. In his executive functions, the Governor is assisted by a maximum of seven Under-Secretaries in charge of relevant sectors of administration.

Macau enjoys economic, financial, and judicial autonomy. However, under the Sino-Portuguese Joint Declaration of Macau, signed in April 1987, the government of the People's Republic of China will take over sovereignty of the territory on December 20, 1999. Subsequently, the Special Administrative Region of Macau (RAEM) will be instituted, which will be governed according to the Basic Law.
