Q: It has recently been reported that the “Executive Yuan” of Taiwan has adopted the Draft Management Regulations on Recreational Casinos, permitting the Mazu region to have casinos, and it will soon be submitted to the “Legislative Yuan” for approval. What do you think about this?
A: We noted that the executive agency of Taiwan had recently adopted the Draft Management Regulations on Recreational Casinos which will soon be submitted to the legislative agency for approval.
We hereby reiterate that gambling is expressly prohibited in the Chinese mainland. It is clearly specified in both the Measures for the Administration of the Travel of Mainland Residents to the Taiwan Region and the Agreement between the Two Sides of the Taiwan Straits on Travel of Mainland Residents to Taiwan that tourists from the mainland are prohibited from gambling in the Taiwan region.
We hope that the Taiwan side can address this issue prudently from the perspective of maintaining the overall tourism exchange and cooperation between the two sides. In case the draft is adopted and casinos are opened in the Mazu region, it will definitely have negative impact on the ordinary tourism exchange and cooperation between the two sides, and we will have to take measures to restrict the travel of mainland residents to the relevant region.
