Big Lifestyle and Development (Seychelles) said it will act as the exclusive sales and marketing partner for a new casino resort being built in Kazakhstan along a stretch of the ancient Silk Road, which is being revamped under a multi-billion dollar Chinese plan.
The Tengri Resort is being developed in the Almaty region of Kazakhstan. It will be an all-season resort area containing hotels, casinos, residences, shopping, golf courses, horse racing, nearby skiing and a Silk Road entertainment park and a marina.
It will also feature medical, educational, convention and logistics developments.
The project is being built on an area of 16,000 square acres, bounded on one side by an 87-mile long lake and on the other by a new superhighway and high-speed rail being constructed as part of the Chinese Silk Road Project, which will stretch from Beijing to Amsterdam. A new international airport is also being constructed at the site with funding being provided by the Chinese government.
The developer has the exclusive gaming concession for the area, which is expected to eventually include several integrated resorts. They will be the only legal gambling areas within a 1,800-mile radius, Big Lifestyle said in a release.
The “New Silk Road” project of intercontinental land routes and maritime links is funded by the Marine Silk Road Bank, a $50 billion infrastructure bank that is focused on building roads, railways, ports and airports across Central and South Asia.
