Casino Gaming in Taiwan, Then & Now: GMA White Paper Released

TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Market Advisors (GMA), a leading hospitality research and consulting firm focused on the global casino gaming, lodging, tourism, and airline industries, today issued a thought-leadership piece entitled, "History and Current Status of Gaming in Taiwan," authored by Bill Bryson, who heads GMA’s office in Taipei, serving greater China.

The white paper provides an informative historical perspective on the attempts to legalize gaming in Taiwan, the current status of efforts to promote casino gaming in Taiwan, and the associated legislative mechanics. Insights on the upcoming casino gaming referendum to be held in Penghu, and the likelihood of gaming on the islands of Matsu and Kinmen, are also provided.

“Taiwan is very interesting to the biggest corporations in the global casino industry,” Mr. Bryson stated. He continued, “Taiwan has shown an interest in creating a casino gaming industry on Taiwan’s offshore islands, with a focus on economic and tourism development. The question is whether or not this interest will persist after the recent handover of the government to the Democratic Progressive Party. While not a certainty, and despite some recent starts and stops, GMA believes there is reason to be optimistic.”

Andrew Klebanow, Senior Partner at GMA stated, “Taiwan ranks with Japan as a potential lucrative casino gaming jurisdiction. The pending referendum in Penghu, and the possibility of a referendum in Kinmen, has renewed interest in Taiwan among foreign casino operators. GMA’s thought-leadership and advisory support will hopefully serve the purpose of keeping interested investors apprised of developments in this emerging gaming venue.”
