LVS grants a further year for Marina Bay Sands development 

Las Vegas Sands (LVS) has said its planned Marina Bay Sands unit in Singapore has been granted a one-year extension before construction must begin.  

The integrated resort operator has said the Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Tourism Board have amended the development agreement to begin construction on 8 April 2023.
