The details are contained in today’s Decree No. 665 of the State Council. The new map comes into force today, while the old map, which was issued in 1999, is revoked.
According to the new map, the Macao SAR also takes on administrative responsibility for an area of land where the Border Gate with Zhuhai is located, and a section of Canal dos Patos.
Maritime zones of the Macao SAR under the new map include: the Inner Harbour; the Cotai channel; the sea areas to the south, east and north of the Macao SAR; and the water around a piece of land reclaimed for urban use and known as Zone A.
The Macao SAR Gazette issued today Chief Executive Notice No. 128 featuring the official Chinese and Portuguese versions of the Decree of the State Council and the new administrative map of the Macao SAR.
