"It is a great honour for Galaxy Entertainment Group, and for me personally as

timeframe since being founded in 2002, and its tremendous success stems from
seamlessly combining gaming and non-gaming elements under one roof to create a
new, exciting, and all-encompassing leisure and entertainment experience for
Being recognised as the Casino Operator of the Year Australia/Asia is a great
endorsement of our vision, and a fitting tribute to our high quality
management team and the commitment of our 16,000 team members who work
tirelessly every day to deliver our 'World Class, Asian Heart' service
standard to each and every guest.
As our business grows, sharing our success with the Macau and Hong Kong
communities is becoming ever more important. During 2013 GEG implemented a
number of diverse community and volunteering initiatives through its dedicated
'GEG Volunteer Team' who contributed many hours of community services. We also
made donations to many charitable organisations and people in Macau, Hong Kong
and Mainland China.
Looking ahead, we will continue to ensure that our 'World Class, Asian Heart'
service philosophy, which draws on providing visitors with a combination of
the best hospitality practices and standards from both the West and the East,
permeates GEG's properties, products, services and people. We are currently
about half way through the construction of Galaxy Macau^TM Phase 2, and will
soon commence the construction of Phases 3 and 4. These awards are a great
testament to the progress we have made towards our ultimate goal to be
'globally recognised as Asia's leading gaming and entertainment corporation'."
