Good Morning. Macau’s gaming operators will have to flex their collective muscles as they’re expected to do the “heavy lifting” in the city’s diversification efforts, notes an expert. Current non-gaming GDP expectations are unrealistic, barring more concrete efforts to bridge public and private interests.

“Heavy lifting” expected from operators: consultant

Macau’s six gaming concessionaires will largely be expected to do the “heavy lifting” in diversifying the city’s economy, notes gaming executive Kevin Clayton. Current government expectations for non-gaming’s GDP contribution to reach 60 percent of GDP by 2028 are unrealistic, unless a new entity is created to help bridge public and private interests, such as a Macau Tourism Corporation, suggests the insider.
