A Swedish firm that supplies law enforcement and government agencies with technology to extract data from mobile phones said it has pulled its business from Hong Kong.

The decision by Stockholm-based Micro Systemation AB came after a White House executive order on July 14 stripped Hong Kong of its special trading status, said Mike Dickinson, deputy executive officer. That status had granted Hong Kong more favorable treatment than China.

Dickinson said in an email that his company, known as MSAB, would no longer “supply solutions” to the Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau of the Hong Kong Police Force, nor any other government agencies in the territory. He said the executive order “impacts our U.S. legal entity and presence in the U.S.A.

MSAB had pulled its business from China earlier in 2020 due to changes in “regulatory regimes and restrictions” related to

From remote viewing and production programs to no-contact studios-in-a-box, tech was already revolutionizing the way marketers and creators thought about branded content, but COVID-19 has led to even more cataclysmic change in the industry. 

Largely due to pandemic-related roadblocks, branded content revenue for publishers is expected to be down this year between 20% and 40%, according to Digiday—but considering that up to 40% of digital ad revenue comes from branded content, you can bet that brands are adapting their branded content strategies in an attempt to make up the difference.

Now more than ever, content creators need to be tuned into the latest innovations to keep up with demand in a changing world. Here’s how new technology is morphing the way branded content is created.

Malaysian opposition leader Anwar plans new government

Anwar’s “assertion is nothing more than a repeat of cheap publicity” stunts and shows he is “power crazy,” said the joint statement signed by the parties’ secretary generals.

Earlier in a televised speech, Muhyiddin also told Malaysians to “reject the blind actions of some politicians who deliberately want to disrupt political stability” and his government’s economic recovery plan. He announced billions of ringgit (dollars) in new cash handouts to help small businesses and the poor amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Muhyiddin has been grappling to maintain support amid infighting in his coalition that has just a slim two-seat majority. He can ask the king to dissolve Parliament to seek early general elections.

James Chin, professor of Asian studies at Australia’s University of Tasmania, said he believed negotiations for the formation of a new government are still ongoing.

“The big question mark now in Kuala Lumpur is that people have not seen
