Wynn's bidding in Singapore has no impact on investment in Macau
4/3/2005 15:46

A senior executive with the Wynn Resorts (Macau) expelled worries that the parent company's involvement in Singapore's casino bidding would hinder its investment plan in Macau.
Friday's Macau Daily quoted Grant Bowie, President and General Manager of the Wynn Resort (Macau), as saying that the company considered that Singapore's latest endeavor to introduce a casino would have no impact on Macau's gaming industry.
He said that the Wynn Resort (Macau) has started employment. The company will organize a big job fair by the end of the year hoping to recruit some 4,000 people to meet the demand for the launch of its business.
The US casino mogul Steve Wynn announced his plan for a 705 million-US-dollars worth Las Vegas-style resort in Macau last year.
Bowie held that Macau has laid a solid foundation of the gaming industry. In the next two or three years, there will be several casinos and entertainment groups coming off stream.
Bowie disclosed that the company is still looking for other investment projects in Macau. He considered that the parent company would reinforce its confidence in expanding investment in the Asian region if it won the bidding in Singapore.
Bowie has more than 20 years of industry experience. He had previously managed Australia's Conrad Jupiters and Treasury casinos.
