ITB responds on Ticktack Technology's withdrawal from smart lampposts project

Regarding the decision of Ticktack Technology Limited, the supplier of Bluetooth beacons installed in the smart lampposts, to cease supplying and installing smart devices for smart lampposts in future upon completion of its work on the existing 50 lampposts because of threats to the personal safety of family members of directors and employees, a spokesman for the Innovation and Technology Bureau expressed sympathy and understanding and said the bureau respected the company's decision.

"We find it not acceptable and deeply regret that a local small enterprise has been doxxed and attacked because of its participation in the smart lampposts project. The incident is a serious blow to the hard work of the local innovation and technology industry," the spokesman said.
