Asia Pioneer said in its quarterly report that it expects “tourists, mass gamers, consumers and businesses” to return after COVID-19, so it will “get the company back to profitability” this year.
The management remarks contained in the document also referred to the Group’s business diversification strategy. “As Macau changes from a pure gambling hub, we will focus more on non-gaming businesses, including technology and other non-gaming services. The group will explore diversification opportunities that align with the group’s competitive advantage,” the document states.
