Operators’ Japan IR appetite unchanged despite Covid-19

first_img Email Address Regions: Asia Japan Operators’ Japan IR appetite unchanged despite Covid-19 Casino & games One in five businesses considering bidding for one of Japan’s three integrated resort (IR) licences say they are “less interested” in the process because of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, while two thirds remain set on competing. One in five businesses considering bidding for one of Japan’s three integrated resort (IR) licences say they are “less interested” in the process because of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, while two thirds remain set on competing.A new survey conducted by the Japan Integrated Resort Association (JIRA), which launched in June, asked 132 parties interested in participating in the IR process, about the impact of Covid-19 on their future plans.Of these respondents, 89.4% said their work related the IR process had been impacted by the virus.However, the majority of respondents (66.7%) said there was no change in their interest in the scheme despite this disruption. Meanwhile, 21.3% said they were less interested than before, while 12.0% said they were more interested.Among possible problems created by the virus, the difficulty of international travel was the most commonly mentioned, with 61.4% of respondents saying it could be an issue.A further 59.0% raised concerns about the difficulty in forecasting demand, while 40.9% were worried about the cost of infectious disease control measures, and 39.4% flagged difficulties in developing such a resort while working remotely.Opinions differed greatly over how long these challenges would exist for, but 27.5% said the impact of the challenges would be permanent. This compared with 20.6% saying the impact would last for more than two years; 26.7% saying it would last for up to two years, and 16.8% for about a year.When asked what factors were most likely to determine the success or failure of IRs, 60.3% said it would be the future of the global economy. A further 56.5% said the existing legal and regulatory requirements would be a key determinant while 53.4% mentioned domestic demand.Among legal and regulatory priorities, most respondents said tax was the most important issue, with 60.5% mentioning it as a key priority. This compared to 58.1% who mentioned the licensing system and 28.7% who mentioned responsible gambling.In March 2019, the country passed regulations for the creation of IRs. However the scheme has been controversial, with an opposition legislator submitting a bill in January 2020 to abolish the scheme.It has also been subject to delays as a result of Covid-19, with the basic policy – setting out a regulatory framework for the selection process – that was due to have been adopted in the first half of 2020 still yet to be ratified. This in turns means the deadline for potential host cities to select a private sector partner for IR development looks increasingly likely to be pushed back, with Osaka and Wakayama already delaying the request for proposal process.Even before this, some potential bidders concluded that the regulations were too onerous to make the project viable. In May, Las Vegas Sands withdrew from the process, for this reason. MGM Resorts, on the other hand, remains committed to competing for a licence.center_img Topics: Casino & games AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 4th August 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

Protests hit police-state expo

first_imgOakland, Calif. — Urban Shield, a million-dollar expo for training and sales of military hardware to local police departments, was kicked out of Oakland last year after militant community actions including street blockades. This year, the four-day event, called “the largest tactical exercise in the nation” for domestic war games, retreated to the county fairgrounds in Pleasanton, Calif., but drew continued protests on Sept. 11.Several hundred people took over the intersection outside the Alameda County Sheriff’s office for 90 minutes of guerrilla theater, music and speeches to denounce Urban Shield, which trains about 5,000 people from 100 agencies, including SWAT team tactics. A 13-year-old Latina girl took the mic to tell how a police SWAT team raided her home at 4:30 a.m. and searched a baby sibling. “As soon as I hit the door, I opened it, they started screaming at me to put my hands up, pointing rifles at me,” she said. “It seemed like a movie.”The Stop Urban Shield Coalition, which includes the Arab Resource & Organizing Center, the Anti-Police-Terror Project, Bayan, Code Pink, Occupy Oakland, Critical Resistance, Workers World Party and the War Resisters League, stated: “While Urban Shield is just one front in the fight against the state’s attempt to militarize every aspect of our lives — from its war-making here and abroad, to the increasing presence of police in our schools, to the systemic murder of Black and Brown people at the hands of police — stopping it would be a major victory against growing militarization, from Oakland to Ferguson to Baltimore.”Urban Shield was created in the wake of Sept. 11 by the Department of Homeland Security and its business partners. Mohamed Shekh of Critical Resistance said that police use Sept. 11 as an excuse to become militarized and to spy on people. Urban Shield, he said, teaches law enforcement how to “better control and repress communities around the world.”The Urban Shield extravaganza will include police enacting “Active Shooter/Immediate Action Team scenarios” normally used in combat zones. Its sponsors include the Homeland Security Department, Elephant Hunt Clothing (guns and skulls), iRobot (unmanned ground vehicles), Mile High Shooting Accessories (sniper rifles), Winchester and other suppliers.The event is open to teams from anywhere, including south Korea this year. In past years, teams from police or sheriff’s departments in Jacksonville, Fla.; Miami; Boston; Philadelphia; Chicago; and Dallas have participated, in addition to the French National Police and agencies from the Kingdom of Jordan, Bahrain and the settler state of Israel.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
