Moving forward

Regarding the elevated competition in the region, Emperor Entertainment says it will continue strengthening its market presence by ‘capitalizing on its brand awareness arising from its long establishment and popularity in Chinese-speaking communities.’

‘Both personal travel and business travel have resumed, and there has been a notable rebound in consumption and entertainment sentiments. All these factors demonstrated the return of hospitality and gaming demand in the regions during the Year.’
