Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 6 May 2015

Genting has broken ground on its Chinese-themed Resorts World Las Vegas (RWLV).

Over the course of the construction and during operation, RWLV will bring tens of thousands of jobs to Southern Nevada.

It is estimated that construction will create more than 30,000 person-years of direct and indirect employment, defined as one person employed for one year. Once in operation, RWLV is predicted to sustain over 13,000 direct and indirect jobs.

RWLV will include three hotels; multiple restaurants featuring a variety of authentic, regional Chinese cuisines; over 100,000 square feet of gaming space; numerous retail offerings; and a top-tier nightlife venue. Additional details on amenities being offered at RWLV will be released throughout the construction process.

"After 50 years of developing integrated resorts all around the globe, we are thrilled to be breaking ground on the Las Vegas Strip in the great state of Nevada," said KT Lim, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Genting Group. "Las Vegas is known for its world-renowned resorts, and the Genting Group looks forward to being a part of the city's continued growth by creating a huge national and international draw with this Chinese themed world-class resort."

Chinese outbound tourism topped 100 million for the first time in 2014, and Resorts World Las Vegas' Chinese theme will likely resonate with many domestic and international tourists.

"With the beginning of construction of Resorts World Las Vegas , the Genting Group will be creating thousands of new jobs in our state and will generate billions of dollars in new economic activity that will benefit all Nevadans. Resorts World Las Vegas will truly help grow the Las Vegas market by attracting greater numbers of visitors, conventions and shows to our state. I am proud to welcome them as a bold new additional of the New Nevada economy," said Governor Brian Sandoval of Nevada.

RWLV is projected to open its doors in mid-2018.
