Economy to continue going strong: think tank

Macau’s economy is set to post a two-digit growth this year and in 2012, according to the latest report on Macau from the Economist Intelligence Unit, of The Economist group. The think tank estimates Macau’s gross domestic product will grow by 12 percent this year and 14 percent in 2012. Not surprisingly, the report says that the main drivers for the growth will be Macau’s gaming industry and private investment.
