In an exclusive interview with AGB Nippon, Ted Chan, appointed as Galaxy’s Chief Operating Officer for Japan Development in April, discussed the increasingly strong position that his Macau-based firm works from as it prepares its bid for one of the three available IR licenses in the country.

Galaxy Entertainment Group (GEG) on Wednesday unveiled their vision for their proposed integrated resort in Japan. GEG and their partner, Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer (SBM), said they envision the development of an IR that will have a transformative impact on the Japanese economy and the city and community where it will be located.
Gaming operator Galaxy Entertainment Group on Friday announced the appointment of Michael Mecca as the company’s non-executive director, with effect from May 4, 2018.
