Japan – Casinos Austria International Japan releases proposal summary for Nagasaki

By - 4 October 2021

Casinos Austria International Japan (CAIJ) has released details for its Nagasaki Integrated Resort which could be built at Sasebo city’s Huis Ten Bosch if Nagasaki wins one of three casino licences to be awarded by government.

Casinos Austria International believes its Nagasaki resort would need an investment of JPY 350bn (US$3.2bn) and will attract up to 8.4mvisitors each year, creating 30,000 jobs and generating JPY 320bn (US$2.9bn) for the economoy.

In the proposal CAI said: “We will construct an IR appealing to all with CAI’s full support and safety and security as the top priorities. We will come together with Nagasaki prefecture and Kyushu’s corporations to create an area development plan in order to gain approval for Kyushu/Nagasaki as an IR area.”

“We strive to achieve the highest level of business operations in the world, focusing first and foremost on ensuring thorough compliance and exclusion of all harmful influences, allowing absolutely no unlawfulness, bribery or corruption,” quoting credibility and sustainability as the most important aspects in achieving a Kyushu/Nagasaki IR. We aim to achieve world class standards to counter these major concerns.”

“In cooperation with Kyushu/Nagasaki companies, we aim to build a world-class IR with a traditional sense of luxury that will lead to a wave of economic effects throughout all of Kyushu.”

The concept is to fuse ‘East and West Cultures – Realising a True Japanese-Western Blend.’ The prefecture wants to ‘inherit the historical culture of Kyushu and Nagasaki, realizing a ‘tourism industry revolution’ with a traditional high-end IR facility leveraging the strengths of the Austrian state-owned group and Nagasaki as a focus and aiming to be an international city where Kyushu, Japan, Asia and the world meet.’

Casinos Austria International has said it plans to operate a 9,000 square meter casino as part of its project for an integrated resort project in Nagasaki, Japan, with 220 gaming tables and 2,200 slot machines ‘offering a gaming experience of the highest international standards.’

The casino is to be located next to the Huis Ten Bosch theme park, where Nagasaki Prefecture plans to develop an integrated casino resort with eight hotels, multiple conference and exhibition centers as well as a variety of entertainment complexes in cooperation with renowned international and Japanese partners.

Casinos Austria Director General Bettina Glatz-Kremsner is delighted with this positive development: “By passing this milestone in the tender process in
Japan, Casinos Austria International has once again demonstrated the excellent reputation that the company enjoys abroad. Following its comprehensive restructuring process, CAI is now fully back on track and continues to impress potential clients with its know-how and expertise in the development and operation of complex projects like this one in Japan. I wish Casinos Austria International under the management of Christoph ZuruckerBurda all the best and sincerely hope that they will be awarded one of the three licenses next year in partnership with Nagasaki Prefecture.”
