Following the passage of the Integrated Resort Promotions Bill late last year, the central government, local governments, and private companies are all speeding up preparations to develop the first integrated resorts(IRs) in Japan. This comes as the government is looking at various ways to further increase tourism to Japan and grow the economy.
Jim Murren, Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International, will share his views and insights on how IRs can contribute to sustainable travel, inbound tourism, regional revitalization, and economic growth in Japan.
