NagaCorp proposes dual company name

Nagacorp Ltd, the Hong Kong-listed operator of NagaWorld casino in Phnom Penh, will ask its shareholders to approve a dual foreign name for the company, it said in a filing on Friday.

The name, written in traditional Chinese characters and containing a phrase meaning “gold world,” would be filed with authorities in the Cayman Islands, where NagaCorp is registered.
