Vietnam’s finance ministry has proposed extending a pilot plan to 2024 to allow economically qualified Vietnamese locals to gamble at selected local casinos, local news media VietnamNet reported. The number of stadiums allowed under the plan will be expanded from the current two to four, the report added. The pilot scheme was implemented in 2017 but was not activated until 2019.
According to the news media, the three-year test plan was originally scheduled to be reviewed this year. The media report cited the ministry as saying the extension to 2024 was due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. It affected domestic leisure activities, and reduced inbound tourism trade from abroad. The two casino projects, now part of the local play pilot in Vietnam, are the first currently active COVID resorts and casinos on the southern resort island of Phu Quoc, which opened in January 2019. Its launch boosted the launch of the pilot scheme. 파칭코
The second thing that can already serve locals is the anti-money plan in Quang Ninh Province, which is being pursued by the Vietnamese company Sun Group. The ministry has recommended adding a planned casino project to the island of Hontre, Kanhoa, the media reported. The plan is said to be partially supported by Vinpear Co, a local hospitality company that is part of Vietnam’s leading conglomerate Vinggroup Co.
The fourth pilot program is a casino project that will be developed at the Sunworld Banahill Tourist Site in Danang City, central Vietnam. The report said the ministry suggested that developing and adding two projects to the pilot plan could help revive the country’s tourism sector.
