Wakayama government signs IR basic agreement with Clarebest

Japan’s Wakayama Prefecture government said Thursday it has signed a framework agreement with a consortium led by Clairvest Neem Ventures Co., Ltd. for the development of casino resorts known in Japan, or integrated resorts (IR).

This was the first such agreement on an IR project that could be concluded by a local government in Japan. Local governments interested in holding IR must first select a commercial partner and then apply for the right to hold the facility to the local government. Under the relevant legal system, up to three resorts will be allowed in Japan.

According to Japan’s GGRAsia correspondent, Wakayama’s agreement addresses topics related to the establishment of IR companies, confirms the probability procedures carried out by the consortium, and refers to procedures related to the consortium’s maintenance of ethical integrity.

The current government will also require the consortium to improve its proposals, improve its action plans and cooperate with companies in the Wakayama area.

Clarevest Nim Ventures is a subsidiary of Clarevest Group Inc., a Canadian-based private equity management firm. Led by the company, Japan Ventures was confirmed by the Wakayama government as a tilted business partner in attracting the prefecture’s casino resort in July.

Clarebest’s proposal for a Wakayama IR (artist’s rendering photo) plan is estimated to have an “initial investment” worth 470 billion yen ($4.3 billion). According to corporate data posted on the prefecture’s website, the project will have a total floor area of 569,000 square meters (6.12 million square feet). The plan will be built on an artificial island called Marina City.

French casino operator Grupe Partuche SA and AMSE Resorts Japan Inc, a company linked to former casino executive William Weidner, are Clervest’s Wakayama planning partners, according to a Clervest announcement made in June.

Authorities in Wakayama City have said they will apply for certification as a casino resort hosting area by April 28, 2022.

Clarebest was the only competitor to the county’s proposal request process after being notified of its withdrawal from Suncity Holdings Japan Inc, a company linked to entrepreneur Alvin Chauchukwa, president of privately owned Macau junket investor Suncity Group.
