Macau’s retail industry - specially the luxury segment - has been growing at a fast pace over the last 10 years with major opportunities arising from the new shopping malls and the exponential growth in tourism and the gaming business. Ultimately it resulted in the increase of overall economic growth and a rising desire for luxury products turning Macau into a shopping destination.

In the upcoming years, with the development of further integrated resorts and shopping malls, due to open very soon, it is expected that the number of opportunities in the retail sector will continue to rise in Macau.
