Macau Q4 GDP up 86 pct, game exports up

Macau’s gross domestic product (GDP) rose 86.4% year-on-year in real terms in the fourth quarter of 2023, according to data from the Bureau of Statistics. The increase was “driven by a remarkable recovery in exports of services,” the bureau said in a report released on Friday.

Exports of gaming services and other tourism services rose 430.8% and 130.2%, respectively, the report showed.

Macau’s gaming services are included in exports when calculating the city’s GDP. It is to reflect tourists’ spending at the city’s casinos.

At current prices, Macau’s fourth-quarter GDP rose 9.9% quarter-on-quarter to 107.7 billion MOPs ($13.3 billion).

Domestic demand rose 3.5% year-on-year in the three months to Dec. 31, with private consumer spending and total fixed capital formation up 16.6% and 10.0% respectively, the bureau said.

Private construction investment rose 44.6% year-on-year, driven by increased investment from gaming companies.

For all of 2023, Macau’s GDP jumped 80.5% year-on-year in real terms. At current prices, Macau’s GDP stood at MOP379.5 billion in 2023, compared to MOP197.3 billion in the previous year.
