Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited (SHKP) continues to support Hong Kong’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. To provide a stable and high-speed network communications service, SHKP’s subsidiary SmarTone is constructing 5G networks at full speed at 10 sites where community isolation facilities (CIFs) and a hospital for emergency use are located. Anti-pandemic workers and people admitted to the facilities will also enjoy free local data from SmarTone. Moreover, SHKP will give out 15,000 complimentary tickets to Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck and another 15,000 to Noah’s Ark Hong Kong Theme Park to occupants of the six CIFs.

SHKP Chairman and Managing Director Raymond Kwok said: “SHKP has assisted in different areas to fight the virus since the outbreak of the pandemic. Our initiatives include lending for free sites for building CIFs, providing free office space as venues for community vaccination, speedily constructing 5G networks for CIFs, expediting the transportation of supplies from the mainland, and arranging for our property management companies to help with the last-mile delivery of anti-pandemic items. SHKP has worked closely with different parties in the anti-pandemic fight, in the hope that Hong Kong will win the battle and return to normal as soon as possible.”

Today, Edward Yau, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, visited the Tam Mi CIF in Yuen Long in the company of Allen Fung, SHKP Executive Director and SmarTone Deputy Chairman & Executive Director, to learn more about the SmarTone 5G service and formally receive the materials donated by SHKP. Allen Fung said: “SHKP remains united in the anti-pandemic fight. As a pioneer in mobile service, SmarTone started building 5G networks for CIFs while the latter were still under construction. The SmarTone team also quickly arranged 5G Wi-Fi routers and free local data cards for CIFs, allowing anti-pandemic staff and people under isolation to maintain seamless communication with the community.”

Committed to Building Networks with Heart, SmarTone has already completed the construction of 5G networks for the CIFs in Tam Mi, San Tin and Hung Shui Kiu. Occupants and staff in the CIFs, including frontline healthcare workers and members of the anti-pandemic task force, will also receive 5G Wi-Fi routers and free local data cards from SmarTone. With a stable, high-speed 5G network, anti-pandemic workers can speed up the check-in of CIF occupants, who can also scan a QR code with their mobile phones to access a designated webpage, where they can fill out personal information, pre-order meals every day, and request daily necessities. 

In addition, SHKP will present 15,000 tickets to the Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck and another 15,000 to Noah’s Ark Hong Kong Theme Park to families admitted to CIFs, hoping a tour to Hong Kong’s famous attractions will help lift their spirits after their stay in the CIF. Another SHKP subsidiary, YATA, has prepared 20,000 caring kits for occupants in the Tam Mi and San Tin CIFs.

Earlier, SHKP lent for free a site in Tam Mi and another in San Tin for building community isolation facilities. The Group also offered another plot of land in San Tin to serve as a temporary cargo transfer yard to help handle supplies from the mainland. The three sites have a combined area of about 1.7 million square feet.
