Macau businessman plans to build tourist resort in Cabo Verde

6 February 2014

A tourist resort with a luxury hotel, casino and marina costing US$300 million is due to be built on the islets of Santa Maria, in Praia, the capital of Cabo Verde (Cape Verde), by businessman and honorary Cabo Verde consul in Macau, David Chow.

According to the Cape Verdean press, which cited the businessman on his recent visit to Cabo Verde, work is scheduled to begin this year, although the resort’s plot does not yet have basic infrastructure and work will include renewal of the entire Gamboa coastline.

During his visit to the archipelago, Chow gave assurances that there were other Macau investors interested in Cabo Verde and that it was “necessary to talk and make closer contacts with businesspeople in the administrative region and in China.”

Businessman David Chow owns and runs several casinos in Macau as well as the Fisherman’s Wharf theme park, which is now being refurbished. (macauhub)
