Lawrence Ho discusses Japan IRs

The CEO of Melco said that Tokyo is the city of future and that he wants his company to build an IR in the territory.

Japan.- Lawrence Ho, chairman and CEO of Melco Resorts and Entertainment, said yesterday during a press conference in Tokyo that he’s still interested in building an integrated resort (IR) in Tokyo as he believes that it’s the “city of the future.”

During the event held in the business district of Otemachi, Ho talked about the future of Melco and his interest in the Japanese market. “There are so many elements that I love about Japanese architecture, Japanese landscaping, the culture, tea ceremony… If we were able to build an IR here, it would truly be a dream come true,” he said.

“You want the right, affluent tourism—people who can actually contribute. More affluent tourists are more sophisticated. They can appreciate and understand the culture a lot more than just the masses,” he added.
