Team Named to Conduct Gaming Study for Japanese Government

The Innovation Group last month announced that it has been selected as an industry adviser for the project team chosen by the Cabinet Secretariat of Japan to complete a comprehensive research study corresponding to the proposed integrated resort legislation.

The team, led by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, was selected to provide research to the senior Japanese cabinet government officials for its consideration and deliberation of a new bill to authorize integrated casino resorts in Japan. The Innovation Group says it was chosen because of its broad international experience relating to integrated casino resorts, which can be applied to the unique circumstances of Japan.

“We are very honored to be chosen as the industry adviser for this team and we look forward to providing our services to support the needs of the cabinet secretary,” stated David Rittvo, executive vice president of Innovation International.

The Japanese government has been considering the implementation of integrated casino resorts for a number of years, and much more intensely over the last year. This present project, however, is a milestone since it is the last major effort sponsored by the cabinet.
