The Osaka City Planning Council has agreed to change Yumeshima island to a commercial zone from its current status as an industrial or semi-industrial zone. The change in status of the zone is to promote Yumeshima as an international tourist hub and develop an integrated resort (IR).

“We will guide reasonable land usage for the purpose of creating a new international tourism hub on the coastal area. It is easily accessible from the city and it is possible to secure a large amount of land,” the Council said.

Yumeshima, an artificial island in Osaka Bay, will host the World Expo 2025. Japan is planning to develop integrated resorts before the World Expo 2025. The development of Yumeshima will be worth around JPY 95.4 billion. The city will extend its Osaka Metro Central Line and will connect Yumeshima to the city.

AGTech Holdings Limited announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Beijing GOT Technology Co., Ltd entered into the Alibaba Cooperation Framework Agreement with Alibaba China.

According to the agreement, AGTech may provide equipment and maintenance services to Alibaba through open bidding and commercial negotiations. Such equipment include, but not limited to, point-of-sales (POS) terminals and face recognition payment equipment, which may be applied to offline retail sales and lottery sales.

The Group’s lottery hardware business has been a critical component of the Group’s business. The Group supplies the Sports Lottery and the Welfare Lottery and has lottery hardware deployed in multiple provinces, cities and municipalities across the PRC, making the Group one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of lottery terminals and other hardware in the PRC. In 2018, the Group won 19 lottery hardware tenders, accounting for over 41% of the overall Sports Lottery terminal tenders in the PRC during the same period, calculated by the number of terminals tendered. The Group did especially well in new Android sports lottery terminals tenders in the PRC, winning over 67% of such tenders in 2018, calculated by the number of terminals in such tenders.

The Group believes that Alibaba Group’s new retail initiatives present a great opportunity for the further development of the Group’s lottery hardware business. New retail represents the convergence of online and offline retail by leveraging digitalised operating systems, in-store technology, supply chain systems, consumer insights and the mobile ecosystem to provide a seamless shopping experience for consumers.. In particular, new retail initiatives require the supply of an enormous amount of hardware supplies, such as POS terminals, and payment and settlement devices. Many of these hardware supplies share similar designs, technologies and components that underlie the lottery hardware products supplied by the Group throughout the years.

The Group has been collaborating with Alibaba Group’s retail ecosystem including Lingshoutong to enhance on lottery distribution models. Through Alibaba Group’s physical new retail distribution channel and networks, supplying the relevant hardware products in relation to Alibaba Group’s new retail initiatives is able to bring lottery opportunities and resources to more customers, therefore presents direct opportunities for the further development of the Group’s domain expertise of lottery technology and services.

Makati Halts Issuance of Permits to Pogo Service Providers

Makati City has stopped the issuance of business licenses and permits to service providers for Philippine offshore gaming operators (Pogos) due to the concerns over rising criminality and availability of office space.

Makati Mayor Abby Binay said the city would no longer issue letters of no objection for business licenses to Pogo service providers.

“We would no longer accept new applications for Pogo service providers, and crack down hard against illegal activities that are catering to Pogos and their employees within Makati,” Binay said.

Binay said the Chinese rush in the city had increased the demand for housing and offices, causing drastic spikes in real property prices.

“This puts the local property sector at risk of overheating, where its growth becomes unsustainable,” Binay said.

The mayor also said the increasing demand for housing for Pogo employees had given rise to substandard but high-rent apartments.

“These apartments are usually overcrowded with insufficient exits and faulty fire-alarm systems,” she said.
