INTERVIEW: MACAU GAMBLING LICENSE RENEWAL TERM OF 10 YEARS OR LESS HKEJ
The 6 gambling license holders may not be granted a renewal period of 10 years or more. According to authoritative sources, because 3 of those 6 licensed are US-owned, the central government will be more focused on Sino-US relations. This could be a deciding factor in giving licenses with a shorter period (e.g. 5 years). One source said each of the 6 concessionaries will have their licenses renewed in 2020 and in 2022, and no new licenses will be issued.
