The American gaming corporation based in Paradise, Nevada that owns and operates over 50 casinos and hotels, Caesars Entertainment is trying hard to obtain a Japanese Integrated Resorts license. They have created a three-person ‘Japan Advisory Committee’, composed of important executives.
However, as the prime minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe is making a preliminary form of the highly-anticipated bill, a lot of worldwide gaming companies are giving an effort to win the chance of getting the special license.
The whole race for the exclusive license in Japan is who will operate first in the exclusive leisure complexes that will contain gaming facilities with shops and hotels.
The team of three influent men, created by Caesar’s is proof that how big they are interested in entering the Japanese market.
The responsible person for the company's expansion into international markets and the president of International Development for Caesars Entertainment Corporation, based in Hong Kong, Steven Tight, said: “We are thrilled to welcome such a distinguished and experienced group of global leaders to our team. Caesars has a proud legacy of delivering remarkable entertainment experiences while focusing on responsible gaming and economic development.”

Charlene Barshefsky, said: “Caesars Entertainment has been successfully developing and operating Integrated Resorts for many decades. Given their vast experience fostering international business as a global leader in the MICE industry, and my experience building strong economic ties between the United States and Japan while United States Trade Representative, joining their team was a natural decision.”
