Other Abstract

Bureaucratic performance is problematic in many former colonies (Adamolekun 1999, 11). However, civil service reform often accompanies decolonization and aims to improve the effi - ciency of government administration, thereby legitimizing the postcolonial regime. Although decolonization in Macao did not lead to independence of the polity, rather the establishment of a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), still civil service reform in Macao is no exception. Like many former Portuguese colonies, an ineffi cient civil service was a Portuguese legacy in Macao (Saldanha 1994, 43–53; Lo 1995, 117–49; Chou 2005, 63–86). Th e local community has criticized the performance of the bureaucracy since the colonial era. Th is chapter discusses the features and problems of Macao’s civil service system and the reform carried out by the Macao Special Administrative Region (MSAR) government after the handover. It introduces Macao’s civil service system, delineates the problems in the bureaucracy, and, fi nally, discusses civil service reform as well as the obstacles faced by the MSAR.
