Nagasaki inks deal with Casinos Austria for integrated resort

Nagasaki prefecture’s regular assembly was held on June 26 where it was concluded not to wait for Japan’s basic integrated resort policy draft to be finalised before proceeding with the prefecture’s Request for Proposal process to gain an integrated resort licence.

Asgam reports that as a result of the assembly, Nagasaki’s RFP process could be launched as soon as July.

The prefecture initially stated its RFP request for prpoposal would start “around spring”, but since the government’s basic policy has been delayed due to corruption scandals related to IRs and the impact of COVID-19, and given that further information hasn’t been announced by the national government, the conclusion was to “get started this summer.”

With no change in the government’s application period of January to July 2021, Osaka and Wakayama prefectures have already started their recruitment processes without waiting for the country’s basic policy.

Members of the general affairs committee are concerned that a delay in operator selection will negatively affect preparation work.

The prefecture’s IR Promotion Department stated: “One of our options is to start the RFP before the national government announces the policy.

“It is necessary to make a decision on starting the procedure in July or August.”

The department also reported that a screening committee is responsible for selecting an operator had been established on May 13.

Nagasaki prefecture previously announced the three-week briefing period prior to the RFP had concluded on June 19, with Governor Hodo Nakamura stating: “The current plan is to start the RFP process in summer, and we plan to make a decision on an IR operator this winter.”
