Next year is an important year for casino operators in Macau. The six licensed operators have to prove to the city that they’re worthy of being issued a new concession, but there’s a problem. No one yet knows what is going to be expected of them moving forward. Without some idea of how Macau’s gaming industry is going to be framed, it’s difficult for casino operators to know what to expect. Now, with just a year remaining before gaming concessions are to be awarded, there is a belief that current concessions will have to be extended. The president of Sands China, Dr. Wilfred Wong, is convinced that this must happen.
