Caesars Group and Brazilian deputies discuss challenges for casinos installation in the country

On the second day of the official mission, the members of the Tourism Commission were at the Caesars Group's corporate facilities, where they were welcomed by the firm’s VPs of Government Relations, John Maddox and Karlos Lasane. They talked about the positive impacts that gaming activity can bring to Brazil. Then, the group visited the International Gaming Institute (IGI). Deputy Newton Cardoso Jr. proposed that IGI could establish a partnership with the Brazilian Parliament.

“We talked about the challenges for the installation of casinos in Brazil and the positive impacts that gambling activity brings to various regions of the United States, which may become a reality in our country,” said Rep. Newton Cardoso Jr. after the meeting with the Caesars Group executives.

“The legalization of the gaming sector generates jobs, increases tax revenues and ensures the boost of tourism. That is what we want to take to Brazil,” added deputy Magda Mofato.

At the International Gaming Institute (IGI), the group met with Professors Bo Bernhard, Craig Ferreira, Anthony Cabot and Ngai Pindell, who conduct independent studies on the impacts of gaming legislation and licensing in different parts of the world. They helped, for example, to build the law that passed gambling in Singapore and Japan.
 


“I proposed that they could establish a partnership between IGI and the Brazilian Parliament to present an analysis of this level on all the points related to gaming in Brazil,” said Newton Cardoso Jr.

Since Wednesday this week, the Chamber’s Tourism Commission has made a technical visit on an official mission to the city of Las Vegas to analyze the impacts on the Brazilian economy with the release of casinos.

The group has already made a presentation at the University of Nevada Faculty of Law (UNLV) about the history of gaming in Brazil and the projects under consideration at the National Congress.
