The highlight of the summit was a break-out session – “The Caribbean Regulators Forum”, which brought together regulators from the region in a common forum, focusing on core issues, related to constraints and challenges experienced by regulatory agencies.
The timeliness of this Summit cannot be understated as it is a precursor to the Turks & Caicos Islands Government plans to implement legislation and policy for the establishments of a Gaming Commission.
Minister of Gaming, Hon. Ralph Higgs stated; “The ministry in its preparatory phase to usher in a new Gaming Commission with increased compliance and monitoring of the sector, ensuring that the Commission is well resourced to deal with issues of non-compliance and illegal gaming. The sector, no doubt, has emerged into an area providing business investment and employment opportunities for locals, however, equally important is our efforts to incorporate “responsible gaming” as a critical aspect of the industry.”
The event also provided an elaborate exhibit space, where participants got first hand exposure to new games & technology, whilst networking with supplier and distributors. The TCI delegates agreed that the summit underscores the research, growth and development in this industry and such exposure will go a long way in efforts being made to provide the TCI Gaming industry.
