The Finance Ministry would be assigned to consult the Deputy Prime Ministers and other related ministers before finalizing a draft decree to revise Government Decree No. 86/2013/ND-CP dated July 29, 2013, on the business of prize-winning video games for foreigners.

The draft decree is expected to specify business conditions, persons eligible for playing games, management responsibilities of functional agencies and assurance of national security and social order and safety related to this business.

Under Vietnamese law currently in force, Vietnamese are not allowed to play games at prize-winning video game facilities and only foreigners and overseas Vietnamese with foreign passports may enter casinos and play slot machines in the country.- (VLLF)
