In today’s special GGB News report, Brendan Bussman, the director of government affairs for Global Market Advisors, describes the way Macau dealt with the advance of coronavirus by closing and then reopening its casinos. He also talks about how other Asian countries have made decisions regarding closing their own casinos in Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines and other jurisdictions. Are there lessons to be learned on other countries? Since Macau reopened its casinos, revenues have barely recovered, dropping 80 percent from the figures posted in March 2019. What does this mean for the possible reopening of the U.S. industry? Bussman spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros on March 31 at the GGB offices in Las Vegas.
