SINGAPORE: The government is reviewing the Casino Control Act, which governs the operations of the two integrated resorts (IRs) in Singapore.
Resorts World Sentosa was the first of the two integrated resorts in the republic to begin operating in January 2010, while Marina Bay Sand started its operations in April, the same year.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, S. Iswaran, said it was timely for the various agencies to review the regulations.
He was quoted as saying by local television Channel NewsAsia (CNA) that Singapore had accumulated two years of experience with the IRs and had the chance to look at other jurisdictions which had evolved in the management of IRs, and in particular, casinos.
Iswaran, who chairs a joint committee which looks into issues concerning the two IRs, was speaking at the end of a community visit to the MacPherson division of Marine Parade GRC here today.
