Regulatory Challenges in Emerging Markets
The Asian payments landscape is highly dynamic and technologically innovative, especially in cross-border money flows, a top driver for growth in the ASEAN region. As rapid changes in technology change expectations and needs of users, companies and authorities are pushing for faster transfer times, greater cost efficiency and an up-to-date regulatory regime. This takes place against a backdrop of new opportunities for growth, such as the emergence of cryptocurrencies and distributed ledger technology.
The panelists, representing both industry experts and regulatory authorities, will discuss the work being done to encourage fintech initiatives, as well as the next steps that should be taken by policymakers to drive business opportunities both locally and across borders.
