This week, the American Gaming Association and AGA President and CEO Geoff Freeman lauded the latest news to emerge from Japan.
In particular, Freeman released a statement in response to the passage of Japan’s IR Promotion bill.
“The passage of legislation in Japan that makes possible the development of integrated resorts is truly historic,” Freeman writes.
After decades of study, it is clear that the expansion of our industry in Japan will produce many of the same results it has in the United States: growth in jobs, tax revenues for community services, increased travel and tourism from domestic and foreign visitors — and vast economic expansion.
“As progress continues, the American Gaming Association looks forward to providing partnership and support to Japan’s cultural, business and civic leaders,” the statement concludes.
