澳门将从赌博集散地转型旅游的休闲中心

分类:资讯   更新:2015/6/14   来源:网络

  The Macao Special Administrative1 Region is standing2 at a critical juncture3 in transforming from a gaming hub into a world-leading tourism and leisure center with a diversified4 economy, a senior Macao official said at a meeting with deputies to the National People's Congress on Thursday.

  3月5日(周四),一位澳门特别行政区高官在全国人大澳门代表团会议上说,澳门正处于从赌博集散地转型为经济多样化的世界顶级旅游休闲中心的关键时刻。

  It is a major test for the SAR government to act proactively before the gambling5 industry hits an inflection point, and Macao must chart a careful course at this critical time, said Li Gang, director of the Liaison6 Office of the Central People's Government in Macao at a meeting with Macao NPC deputies.

  "A midterm review of the current development of the gaming industry scheduled this year is expected to build consensus7 among society on how to meet the challenge," Li said.

  The latest data from the SAR's Gaming Inspection8 and Coordination9 Bureau shows that Macao's gross gaming revenue dropped 48.6 percent in February to 19.5 billion patacas ($2.45 billion), its steepest ever year-on-year decline.

  Li said he believes that the downward pressure on the mainland economy has resulted in a significant decline of customers to VIP rooms, which is the major cause of the recent sluggish10 revenue for gaming houses. The crackdown on corruption11 is just part of the problem, Li said.

  "We noticed that some of the casinos are not performing their promises to diversify12 their business and provide more services for retailing13, conferencing and exhibitions," Li said.

  The review is not about reissuing the existing gambling licenses14, due in 2020, said Lionel Leong Vai Tac, Macao's secretary for economy and finance.

  "The gaming companies control the most resources in Macao. We should take full advantage of this review to change the wait-and-see stance the industry takes. And we believe it's reasonable to grow nongaming industries with the help of gambling houses, " Leung said.

  To avoid derailing Macao's phenomenal growth-its per capita GDP now ranks fourth in the world-the city is gearing itself up as a leading global tourism and leisure center, as well as a major platform to facilitate trade and business between Portuguese15 speaking regions.

  However, such a diversified economy, Li said, cannot be realized at the cost of sacrificing gaming interests, which are the pillar industry of Macao.

  Instead, the SAR's government should encourage the gaming houses to embrace the transition, a period estimated to last 20 to 30 years, he said.
