What is it about?
This paper aims at modelling growth patterns of Macao’s tourism industry (using a proxy index – gross domestic product, i.e., GDP), the number of inbound tourists, and the consumption of resources using four-parameter logistic models. The relationships between the growth of Macao's tourism industry and increases in energy and water resources are determined.
