Kenneth Feng, president, strategic and chief financial officer of MGM China said: “We remain cautiously optimistic towards a market recovery. We are going to see not just repeat customers, but new faces especially in the premium mass segment. We understand what our customers want and MGM China is well-positioned for the market’s eventual rebound.”
