According to an article today on the Asia Gaming Brief website, Suncity has issued a statement saying, “Suncity Group has been referred to in recent media articles on investment intentions on the island of Phu Quoc, Vietnam.”
“We wish to advise that Suncity Group has not been to the province nor do we currently have any intentions of investing there,”

On March 12 the VietNamNet Bridge news site quoted a  provincial official in reference to the disputed visit by Sun City Group CEO.

We apologize if we misreported events and intentions and will continue to work diligently to break the story when a casino operator is chosen for Phu Quoc Island.
