Taiwan Proposes Developing Casino near Taipei Airport

3 December 2013

Taiwan regulators are about to hold a public hearing in regard to the development of land-based casino in a zone adjacent to the Taoyuan International Airport, which is located 40km from Taipei. In October, the transportation minister explained that this business-friendly area is a feasible and practical location which can host lucrative brick-and-mortar casinos.

This proposal came after the Taiwan cabinet was in favor of a draft legislation that would have seen the construction of several casinos in regions like the Matsu Islands. Up to now, the bill was not submitted and the current political session is about to be closed in December, so this plan might probably not be put into practice in the near future.

Gaming analysts revealed that if the previous draft bill would have been submitted, casinos in Kinmen or Matsu would have had trouble getting the right segment of customers, especially since the majority of visitors would have come from mainland China. This means that casinos in these regions would be more vulnerable to the decisions of Chinese regulators who are not keen on the idea of Chinese residents visiting Taiwan casinos, as some of them have already claimed that they will not allow citizens from China to gamble at Taiwan gambling venues. Since online casino software solutions are not yet available in Taiwan, this region could start developing its land-based casino industry at a fast pace in the years to come.
