The Council for Economic Planning and Development will report in December 2008 if the legalisation and establishment of casinos will be beneficial to Taiwan. Priority will most likely be given to the outlying islands however the northern counties of Miaoli and Taipei are also actively seeking permission to operate casinos.

If allowed, licenses are proposed to have a lifespan of 20 years. Taxation of profits will be at 40% and overseas ownership capped at 60%.
