"We are excited to be the first developer to collaborate with Tap & Go to support the Government's Consumption Voucher Scheme. We're happy to offer the local community attractive incentives to enjoy the shopping, dining and lifestyle experience at our malls with family and friends, giving retail businesses a summer boost and, ultimately, helping to drive Hong Kong's economic recovery," said Fiona Shiu, Deputy Director, Retail (Hong Kong), Swire Properties.

Monita Leung, Head of HKT Financial Services, said: "We are very pleased to partner with Swire Properties to bring benefits to consumers as well as local and small merchants by encouraging spending, and in turn play a part in reviving the economy. Tap & Go is committed to providing users with a secure and convenient shopping and payment experience. With our extensive local merchant network, users can spend at over 100,000 points of sale including local physical stores and online platforms that accept Mastercard®2, UnionPay3 and FPS4."

From 30 July to 31 October 2021, eligible payments made through Tap & Go at designated merchants in Pacific Place, Cityplaza and Citygate Outlets5 may enjoy shopping rewards with a total value over HK$9,000, including mall and merchant cash vouchers and exclusive gifts. Redemption is available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Another highlight of this joint initiative will be a series of lifestyle videos featuring Edan Lui, ambassador of Tap & Go for the Scheme and a member of popular Hong Kong boy band MIRROR. The videos and activities will be showcased across the various digital channels of the malls and Tap & Go as part of the promotional campaign for the Scheme.
