Weidner holds up Macau as model for Matsu


The head of the international group seeking to develop a casino resort on the Taiwan-controlled island of Matsu said the project stands to make Matsu as prosperous as Macau. William Weidner, chairman and chief executive of Weidner Resorts, urged the government to adopt gaming laws to clear the way for his project’s development, which he said would directly create 70,000 jobs and 140,000 indirectly. He suggested his financial backers could lose patience if the laws are delayed.
