On Oct. 16, the Yokohama municipal government began soliciting “concept proposals” for the city’s bid to host a casino-featured integrated resort in Yokohama Port and Yamashita Pier (Naka Ward). To sort out requirements for “implementation policies,” which will be formulated based on the IR implementation law, and collect information, the local government aims to hold “dialogue” with operators and call for ideas for business plans and measures that can be taken to allay public concerns. Concept proposals submitted will not have a direct impact on the selection of operators, the city says. (Abridged)
