We feel gratified that in committing this capital, the investment community believes, as we always have, that Macaus future as a true leisure and business destination lies in the development of the Cotai Strip and its ability to offer a critical mass of hotel rooms, restaurants, retail, entertainment, and convention and exhibition facilities, said Mr. Sheldon G. Adelson, chairman of Sands China Ltd. and its parent company Las Vegas Sands Corp.
