The director of Macau’s Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau, Paulo Martins Chan, has been named 2019 Regulator of the Year for Asia/Australasia by the International Masters of Gaming Law (IMGL).
Chan was presented with the award during a special presentation at IMGL’s Autumn Conference held in Munich last week, one of three regional regulatory awards to be granted this year.
“I am particularly honored that IMGL, a prestigious international association, has awarded me this award, and I consider it to be the fruit of a joint effort by the MSAR government,” Chan told local news outlet Macau News Agency.
“I greatly appreciate the trust and support of Chief Executive Dr. Chui Sai On and the Secretary for Economy and Finance Lionel Leong as well as the entire DICJ team. DICJ will continue to make every effort to develop Macau’s gaming sector.”
IMGL is a not for profit association comprising over 340 members globally. Its members are recognized as leading experts in their jurisdictions and are involved in most material gambling sector developments and issues worldwide.
