Good morning. An eventful weekend in Macau, as operators signed their new concession agreements with the government and outlined their commitments over the course of the coming 10 years. Over 91 percent of the total will go to non-gaming of the $14.8 billion total planned to be invested. This comes as operators push for further relaxations of quarantine and arrival measures, after residents returning from abroad are now allowed to quarantine at home, with further reduced measures. And, in celebration of the Macau SAR establishment day anniversary on Tuesday, we’d like to remind readers that we will only return on Wednesday.
Happy holiday!
