Thai casino discussions likely on hold until after 2023 elections


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone. 

Government moves to develop a legalized casino industry in Thailand are likely to remain on hold until after the country’s 2023 general election, scheduled to take place in May, says one expert in the matter.

Speaking at the 2022 MGS Summit, an online event hosted in Macau on Wednesday, Spectrum Asia CEO Paul Bromberg noted that progress on casino legalization had notably slowed in recent months since a parliamentary committee studying casino feasibility submitted its findings to parliament in July.

The main reason for that, according to Bromberg, is the looming election with questions over which party current Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha will represent. Former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s youngest daughter Paetongtarn Shinawatra is also seen as a genuine contender to assume national leadership.
