Russia.- The government of Primorye in Russia has said it will push through permits for foreign workers to help Hong Kong’s NagaCorp bring forward work on its casino resort near Vladivostok.

The director of the territory’s tourism department, Konstantin Shestakov, said the government wants to see progress on the development of the Primorye gambling zone.

Shestakov said: “Due to the situation with COVID-19, [Naga] was unable to bring the workers of its contractor from China.

“We hope that with the support of the Government and with the stabilization of the situation in the world, the investor will be able to complete the construction of a wonderful facility.”

According to the government official, the US$150m NagaCorp facility is around 60 per cent complete.

On opening, it will have a casino and concert hall, an eleven-floor hotel complex and a water park.

The Primorye zone is currently home to Summit Ascent’s Tigre de Cristal property and the recently opened Shambala.

NagaCorp’s new property along with Diamond Fortune Holdings’ Imperial resort are set to open in 2021.
