Vietnamese company in talks for $7.5 billion casino project

Dao Hong Tuyen, the chairman of Vietnam’s Tuan Chau Group, said he is in discussions with various partners for a $7.5 billion casino project on Tuan Chau island in Halong Bay.

He said he also plans to open a casino with partners on Van Don island; legislators last month discussed the idea of a pilot program to allow local citizens to access future casinos there. Tuyen’s company already operates other tourism businesses on Tuan Chau.
