Officials in Zambia are reportedly soon set to issue new measures that will regulate casinos the southern African nation of 16.2 million people while maximizing business revenues and minimizing any negative effects.

According to a report from the Xinhua News Agency cited by the Malaysian National News Agency, the process is due to see Charles Banda, the new Tourism And Arts Minister for Zambia, establish a statutory instrument to oversee gaming operations while instituting a monitoring system designed to ensure casinos are operating to these mandated guidelines.

The Zambia News And Information Service reported that the ultimate goal of the proposed National Gambling Board was to make sure the land-locked nation’s casino industry was operating in line with the best international practices.
