China – Macau legislators want progress report on each casino operatorBy Phil - 18 May 2021
In the run up to issuing new casino licences, Macau law maker Ella Lei Cheng I has said that legislators want the government to assess how each of Macau’s casino operators has performed and how they have behaved.
The suggestion comes prior to the Legislative Assembly consultation session which will be used to garner opinions on changes to Macau’s gaming legislation. Law makers apparently have some concerns about the process of public consultation for the re-tendering of licences and whether new gaming licenses will be offered.
“The government emphasized that the public consultation will start in the second half of this year,” Ms Lei said. “The government only listened to legislators’ views on this meeting and did not reveal more details about the gaming licenses issues. We expressed our views collected from the society about this topic and hope the government will consider our views when making the consultation document as well as launching the re-tendering process.”
