MANILA -- The Philippines' gaming regulator said it granted a provisional license to the local unit of Hong Kong's Landing International.

Landing Resorts Philippines Development Corp plans to include a casino in its tourism project with the Nayong Pilipino Foundation, the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp said in a statement.

The project will be located in Entertainment City, Landing said on its website. The strip also includes Solaire, Okada and City of Dreams casino resorts.

The project has $1.5 billion in investment commitments and will include a Nayong Pilipino Theme Park, convention center, hotels, offices and commercial facilities in a nearly 100,000 square-meter space, PAGCOR said.

Landing forged a lease contract with Nayong Pilipino last May, PAGCOR said.
