Macau gov pledges more croupier training amid foreign worker concerns

Macau Chief Executive Fernando Chui Sai On is pledging more training opportunities for croupiers and said the government will ensure that casino operators make promoting local residents a priority, local media reports. His comments came after thousands took to the streets to protest the possibility of foreigners working as casino dealers. 

He said the policy address for next year, to be delivered next month, would include measures to reach those goals, beginning next year. However, Secretary for Economy and Finance Francis Tam Pak Yuen said it’s  “somewhat tricky” to meet the primary demand of Macau croupiers and create a law that would ban migrants working as casino dealers.
