Saipan casino operator Imperial Pacific International says it will continue to abide by the conditions of its license agreement in regards to imported labor, local media reports.
In a statement to local media, the company said: “[IPI] would continue to follow and meet what is required based on the exclusive casino license agreement. Currently the import labor is at 45 percent.”
The operator also said that gaming is the only division of the company where a large number of employees are foreigners.
Imperial Pacific International Holdings Limited, the operator of Saipan's only casino, announced record growth in both revenue and profit for the six months to end-June, though further growth is likely to be capped until its new casino and hotel opens next year.
