Following the NSW Government’s endorsement of the corporate magnate’s AU$1.5 billion Barangaroo casino development in Sydney, Mr Packer highlighted the need for manufactured magnetisms. Mr Packer believes the rise of China and the beginning of the Asian Century is upon us and Australia stands to benefit immensely in terms of tourism development and commercial opportunities. “When these people come they will spend money in Sydney and New South Wales and that will create taxes, that will create jobs, that will create on-spend and I think there will be a big economic benefit for everyone,” Mr Packer said.
