A press conference has been conducted at 2:30 pm on 6th December, 2018.

There is an upward trend from the base of 100 points in 2013 to 125 by the end of 2018 Q4. GSI index showed a fair performance in 2018, where a significant drop was found in Q2 and it regained to 120 in Q3 and stood at 125 in Q4.

Performance of dealers has been raised steadily since 2016, but a significant drop was resulted in 2018 Q2 with the index standing at 104 only and regaining to 125 in Q4.

‘Cotai Index’ and ‘Macao Peninsula Index’ were separated from GSI since 2017. Two indices demonstrated a consistent pattern in 2018, but casinos located in Cotai performed better than those in Macao Peninsula.
