For countries and regions all over the world, the Digital Economy brings threats as well as opportunities, fast timeframes and narrow windows of opportunity. Nowhere are these factors more concentrated than in Macau, whose independence comes in the aftermath of regional economic turmoil and the accession of China to the WTO. Small in size and economically dependent on its mighty neighbours, Macau must diversify if it is to survive. The Digital Economy is its chance to recapture the role of intermediary between East and West. This study of the territory’s digital landscape and infrastructure yields an integrated set of policies and actions that could help create a sustainable digital cluster in Macau.
