Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd. plans to invest in China’s Hengqin island and will consider investing at least $5 billion in Japan and Taiwan if allowed, Bloomberg reported, citing an interview with Deputy Chairman Francis Lui. It plans to invest HK$10 billion ($1.28 billion) on setting up sports and non-gaming facilities in the southern Chinese Hengqin island, he said. “If we’re given the chance to build a casino in Japan or Taiwan, we would at least be spending HK$20 billion or HK$30 billion,” Lui said. “We have the financial capacity to do that,” he told the news agency.
