Asia’s Game Changer, Japan Approves Casinos

Category: Tourism, Posted:17 Dec 2016 | 09:43 am

A massive shift in Asian gaming is expected on the heels of Japan’s parliament giving the green light to casinos this week.

For the hospitality sector, the market expectation is that hotels and upscale retail will be major beneficiaries.
