Fintech and Cyber Security Opportunities in Southeast Asia part of London Tech Week 20-24 September 2021
Southeast Asia is experiencing a Fintech boom. According to the World Bank, only 34% of adults in the Philippines have bank accounts; in Vietnam 31% and in Indonesia 49%. COVID-19 has escalated the need for mobile banking and contactless business transactions.
With this in mind, UKABC and the UK Government’s Digital Trade Network are running two sessions at London Tech Week to bring together experts to share business opportunities for UK Fintech and Cyber Security businesses in Southeast Asia.
Agenda – Session 1: Thailand & the Philippines
Panel discussion with UK fintech & cyber security experts to explore:
· How do companies effectively do business in Thailand and the Philippines?
· What are the most significant opportunities in these markets, and how do companies overcome the entry challenges?
· How do banks and fintech companies approach issues of regulatory compliance?
· Are there initiatives to support the tech ecosystem in these markets, such as sandboxes, and are they successful? What is the digital transformation roadmap?
