Yokohama Establishing New IR Promotion Office

The Yokohama municipal government is establishing a new “IR Promotion Office” to guide its policies into the more active phase of IR development.

The new office will have a staff of about 25 city bureaucrats led by Policy Bureau Director Hidefumi Amagai. The office will launch from November 1.

Yokohama is currently in the midst of its RFC process in which interested casino operators, real estate developers, general contractors, and firms aiming to supply new technologies for use in the IR have been invited to participate. (AGB Nippon)
