NHK reported yesterday that the Yokohama Harbor Transport Association consisting of local transport and port-related companies announced at a news conference yesterday the launch of a new Yokohama Harbor Resort Association of some 240 members who are opposed to having an integrated resort with casinos in the city. The group aims to propose private sector-led redevelopment projects for the Yamashita Pier area. The new group’s chairman, Yukio Fujiki, said that they will come up with proposals that will be beneficial for the city’s future and that profitable redevelopment is possible by building a world-class exhibition facility for a wide variety of events and making the port area a hub for international cruise ships. He said he is opposed to casinos out of concern for gambling addiction.
