As you can probably deduce from the above, we
malaccan's are spoilt nowdays with offers and promotions
that our bigger  city cousins  like KL & Singapore has
experienced for years. The Good Thing about this retail efforts by the Casinos
to solicit market control and introduce their own new products and life style sales
is that the retail sector has enable the moneyed people in the smaller towns
and cities now with more choices, places and options within 1.5 -2.5 hours
drive from Malacca. Taking  into consideration the vast amounts of money invested
on these properties, I foresee our malaccan economic contribution to these life style
products to increase in the foreseeable future,along with the myriad down
stream opportunities that will manifest i.e more of our young working for these
properties, earning and expanding the middle income group within the smaller towns
and cities within a 3 hour flight zone from s'pore & m'sia and eventually more curious
manifestations of economic and knowledge based endeavors borne out of plain,
simple business acumen.
Of course the flip side of the coin is more marginalization of the
disenfranchised; the poorly educated; the slow to catch on and the weak.
Basically, more shit will happen through new avenues for the down trodden.
Businesses that cannot compete, offer less value added than their
competitors will suffer; also poor central planning on everything from
pavement size in the future to the size of the  community playground will also bring forth
new political repercussions as the citizenry becomes more aware of their own worth.
The impact of these business entities, I predict, will open the minds of our people
across cultural, political and societal mores very soon. But, I'm digressing.

Malacca Tourism Association is making plans to have an out of town
meeting in Yangoon, Myanmar early August for members and EXCO.
The Association President and her secretariat is busy making the necessary protocol
& invites to the State Government to support our bold move to open relation-ship
between the businesses of Myanmar and Malacca.

Looking at the developments in Macao, within a year of the arrival
of WYNN and Sands Casinos, many of these
Outer Rim (Laos,Cambodia,Myanmar) countries has been targeted first
as customers and later as Macao's internal & Chinese local labor forces get
expensive and more selective career and job wise; as labor supply for these
behemoth retail lifestyle properties.

It will be proper that we read the level of marginalization well to observe
apolitically the coming future societal scenarios across the asia pacific rim.
