SILK AND OPIUM - MACAU WAS A FORMER PORTUGUESE COLONY until the Chinese took over the government again at the end of 1999 allowing the colony a 50 year adjustment period retaining its own internal government and legal systems. Because of it's location at the mouth of the Pearl River, Macau was always destined to be a major port, becoming a cross roads for western and eastern cultures. At various times in history Macau has been the centre of the silk trade and also the more "infamous" opium trade. Much of  Macau's external trade shifted to Hong Kong with the establishment of that city in the 1840s.
