In an unprecedented move the Chinese government will directly address their vision of the Silk Road Project, officially known as One Belt One Road (OBOR) project to industry delegates at the Macao Gaming Show’s annual summit to be held at the Venetian Macao, 17-19 November 2015. The project charts major investments and development around cities located on the historic trading route.

Representatives from the People’s Republic of China Government and the Macau SAR Government will also engage those in attendance about the challenges facing Macau as it diversifies from a gambling-centric economy into one broadening its focus onto culture and tourism as well. Fatima Maria Nunes, Secretary of the organizing association Macau Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Association says the OBOR plan provides a vital guide in the regions evolution.

Nunes said, “We are diversifying, not changing: we are looking at a bigger and more balanced economy. And gaming must play its crucial role in this. How we achieve this? Well November’s Macao Tourism and Culture Summit will be a starting point. This is the underlying question that we will be poring over during the three days: how is gaming going to drive the forces of change and bring a broader and more diversified economy to the city and the entire Asia Pacific Region.”
