Submitted Government Electronic Trading Services (GETS) tender to Hong Kong Government
Tradelink has submitted our proposals in response to the tender issued by Government in April 2017 for the new GETS contract starting January 2019.  The new GETS contract will run from 2019 to 2024, with three years possible extension at the Government's option.  Same as current operating environment, Government intend to appoint three service providers.   Result of the GETS tender will be announced by end of 2017.  As the dominate market player, we have been providing GETS for the trading community since 1997 initially under a 7-year exclusive franchise followed by two GETS contracts which we successfully won through two tendering exercises. With our past two decades' robust experience, we are confident in continuing providing the services to our clients under the new GETS contract.
At the latest update by the Government at the Legco Panel on Commerce and Industry in April 2017 on Trade Single Window (SW) implementation, Government emphasized the need for robust engagement with the industry on business process review due to the changes arising from SW implementation. At the same time, they need to get the necessary funding approval for the design and development of the SW system.  Formulating and drafting a new enabling bill as well as making amendments to some 40 pieces of existing legislations is also required to support the use of SW and the new documentation regime under SW.  Currently, they are working closely with the Department of Justice and the related parties on this mega exercise to prepare the legislative proposals.

Support a major bank with mobile fingerprint authentication solution
Digi-Sign, our subsidiary was appointed by a major bank in Hong Kong to provide a fingerprint authentication solution as secure measures for authenticating identity of their personal mobile banking users. Besides supporting most of the smartphones and being flexible and scalable, our solution adopts FIDO (Fast Identity Online) standard which can support different biological attributes (such as face, voice and fingerprint) for authentication of transaction and more than one attribute for particularly high risk transactions, like securities trading. This is also a key differentiator of our solution from others in the market. More
