South Korean lawmaker to introduce IR bill next month, sees three resorts

    Park Chang-Sik, a member of South Korea’s National Assembly, said he will introduce a bill next month entitled, “Special Act to Develop Integrated Resort Industry for the Promotion of Youth Employment and Social Welfare.” 

    The bill is designed to allow the opening of more casinos in the country, he told a local newspaper in an interview. The bill will contain a mandatory provision on employee numbers, he said, adding that he thinks three IRs are the ideal number for the South Korean market, with two on the mainland and one on Jeju island.
