Here we discuss The Integrated Resorts of Singapore. By definition, integrated resorts are resorts with mixed developments like hotels, restaurants, convention centers, theme parks, shopping centers, casinos, etc. Because the development of gaming elements – casinos, integrated resorts – created a huge controversy in Singapore.
Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien announced the cabinet’s decision to build two integrated resorts in Long Marina Bay and Sentosa. The Singapore government has stated that the goal of the integrated resorts is to make the country’s tourism industry proud. There has been intense competition from neighboring countries such as Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong. According to the government, integrated resorts are expected to generate about 35,000 jobs, directly and indirectly.
