Paulo Martins Chan to feature on opening day of MGS Summit

13 November 2018

Paulo Martins Chan, the Director of Macau’s Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ), will feature on an intriguing panel at today’s MGS Summit titled, “The law and supervision of Macau’s gaming industry.”

Chan’s presence is sure to attract plenty of interest given that the re-tendering process for Macau gaming licenses is just around the corner, with the current 20-year concessions held by the SAR’s six concessionaires all set to expire between 2020 and 2022. The gaming regulator head will offer his thoughts on issues such as how the re-tendering process might transpire and whether the prospect of a seventh gaming license being issued is indeed a reality. Among the companies tipped to be in the running for a potential seventh license are the likes of Caesars Entertainment and Macau’s leading junket Suncity Group.

Chan will be joined on stage today by Dean of the University of Macau’s (UM) Faculty of Law, Dr Tong Io Cheng, with the panel to be moderated by UM Director of Institute for the Study of Commercial Gaming and Macau Legislative Assembly member, Dr Davis Fong.
