Genting Singapore PLC are a Singapore-based specialist company involved in various development fields including the development and operational aspects of Casinos.
For over 30 years, Genting Singapore and its subsidiaries have been at the forefront of gaming and integrated resort development all over the world. They are best known for their award-winning project; Resorts World™ Sentosa in Singapore, which is one of the largest fully integrated destination resorts in South East Asia.
Now, in their attempts to take over competition and assert themselves further in Asia, specifically in Japan, Genting Singapore have established a branch within Tokyo – the work would now likely begin on gaining the rights on building and integrating one of their resorts, casino resorts of course, in Japan.
Competition in Japan and that side of Asia is very stiff with Crown Resorts and the Las Vegas Sands Corporation just to mention 2 of the high profile and high calibre companies battling to get bragging rights and ownership in the country.
This isn’t the first action Genting have taken in Japan or in relation to the overall goal – Asian media source GGRAsia released a report documenting the different elements Genting Singapore already have that are Japanese or, more specifically, Tokyo concentrated in order to get the groundwork in place for this future, and now more of a reality, project to be started.
The firm’s setup already are;
- Resorts World Japan Co Ltd
- Resorts World Tokyo Co Ltd
- Resorts World Osaka Co Ltd
All of these actions from Genting and competitors follow the legislator change in December 2016 that allowed casino gambling in Japan, with more and more companies flooding to the Japanese grounds in an effort to start up and get a piece of the business pie – even without making moves, the industry eyes are firmly fixed on Japan and Tokyo.
Of course, companies are patiently waiting the results of the bills and propositions to make the full regulatory and operational requirements of such companies to be fully decisive and published., which is now likely to happen much sooner rather than much later with upcoming elections said to be pivotal to the outcome.
