The bad news coming from Macau recently hasn’t slowed down. Grant Bowie, the CEO of MGM China, has felt it only too strongly. As the company develops its newest property in the Cotai area of Macau, Bowie is unsure of how big the market will be when it opens in two years, how many tables he will be allocated and how often Chinese customers can visit. He talks about why MGM Cotai will be different from its neighbors and how he believes that the current non-gaming development in Macau is the right thing to do for the future of the SAR. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from his offices in Macau in April.
This week, the GGB Podcast features a long-distance chat with Grant Bowie, the chief executive officer of MGM China, on the downturn in the market there and what it means for the MGM Cotai development.
