Diving into the “Global FinTech Outlook,” HKFW will establish the foundations required for a future-ready ecosystem and regulation for a new era of post pandemic recovery. Despite significant economical setbacks and challenges faced over the past years, FinTech innovation is at its peak, with new business models breaking boundaries and collaboration becoming essential for growth.
Speakers will explore Hong Kong’s FinTech scene’s potential alongside Asia, and the world, and how government policies, regulatory frameworks, and key partnerships will help to realise this aspiration.
Exploring the “Implementation of Emerging Technology,” Hong Kong’s unique tech ecosystem has been an appropriate setting for bringing FinTech innovations to life and facilitate development in prominent areas such as RegTech, Trade Finance,
InsurTech, Mobile Payments, Digital Banking, and more. Learn how emerging technologies are shaping the future of finance, unlock new opportunities, and get inspired by some of the most innovative use cases in the market.
HKFW has positioned Hong Kong as the Asia hub for FinTech in Web3, as the city continues to adopt “Digital Assets” and the government begins to explore regulatory frameworks to unlock the potential of Web3, metaverse, blockchain, and other important emerging technologies.
The HKMA is expected to speak on the potential of Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) and “e-CNY” at their policy statement.
