       development in the Hong Kong, Macau and Zhuhai region. In 
       particular, it analyzes the necessity and strategies for 
       Macau to develop its casino gaming-centered tourism in 
       collaboration with its two neighbor cities. Data were

       that developing tourism in a closely cooperative manner is
       highly desirable for the three destinations. Especially, 
       Macau's collaborations with Zhuhai and Hong Kong are 
       critical to its tourism industry. To become a world-class 
       gaming destination, Macau needs to develop a complementary

       marketing, labor collaboration, infrastructure development,
       and security system etc. Furthermore, if the region could 
       gain the support from the Central Government, the 
       cooperation between the destinations will come out more
