“Predicting the future with insight by studying the present and reviewing the past” has always been one of the main goals of the Centre for Macau Studies of the University of Macau for research projects on contemporary Macao history. The publication of “Chronicle of Macao “1999-2019” has realized this goal. While commemorating in the 20th Anniversary of Macao’s handover to the motherland, we hope to show the great changes, development and progress of Macao in the past two decades, by sorting out the major events since Macao’s handover, and to record how “One country, Two Systems” policy has been implemented in Macao. This book is based on the two major publications previously published by the Centre: “Chronicle of Macao “1999-2009” and “Chronicle of Macao “2010-2014” . By taking reference from all the information and literature materials of Macao SAR government, the Central government and the new departments of the Central Agency in Macao, universities and other academic research departments and institution, a total of more than 3,000 items were covered. The Centre for Macau Studies has been striving to apply a set of objective and fair guidelines, including data and background, to concisely and accurately reflect the true content of the events.
