Macau gaming professor and former lawmaker Davis Fong has called on casinos in the Chinese enclave to switch focus to foreign tourists. According to the expert, operators can still flourish should they adapt their models to attract players from other places than mainland China.

The gambling academic said that, given policy changes in the market, local casinos should start targeting customers from other points of origin, such as Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. Moreover, he said that, before the partial opening of the casino market, Macau saw many tourists from Japan, according to Macau Daily Times.

Fong discussed the Macau gambling industry on the sidelines of an event held on Wednesday. The expert said he believed that expanding the sources of clients, as far as the law permits, should be a long-term goal casinos in the enclave would have to consider.
