Jeju Dream Tower casino transfer get official approval

Hong Kong-listed Landing International has been given the official go-ahead to transfer its casino license from an existing hotel to its new property on Jeju Island, South Korea.

The company will need to implement a local community contribution plan, which mandates 80 percent local employment.
