An international delegation of leaders from Singapore and ASEAN banks and the Association of Banks of Singapore are set to meet with their New Zealand counterparts, as well as local FinTech leaders, for a one-day forum this month designed to develop and drive collaboration and digital innovation.

The forum — Enhanced Partnership for Exponential impact Roadshow — in Wellington on 17 September is organised by technology research firm, Ecosystm, on behalf of the Singapore Fintech Festival, the Monetary Authority of Singapore and The Association of Banks of Singapore, in association with New Zealand Trade & Enterprise and the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade.

Organisers say the event will focus on partnership between Singapore, the ASEAN region and New Zealand in developing enhanced science, technology and fintech innovation to support long-term economic, environmental and social outcomes.

And attendees will also gain insight and knowledge into the issues - including sustainability and climate change, diversity and inclusion and exponential technologies - being discussed at this year’s Singapore FinTech Festival which organisers say reflects the need for industry and policy makers to collaborate to create a sustainable and inclusive future.

The Wellington roadshow will also showcase the API Exchange (APIX) open-architecture platform - an initiative of the ASEAN Financial Innovation Network (AFIN), a not-for-profit entity that was jointly formed by MAS, the World Bank Group’s International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the ASEAN Bankers Association.

“We strongly believe technology and its advancements, including FinTech, has immense potential to solve several of the world’s socio-economic challenges,” says Amit Gupta, CEO, Ecosystm.

“The Wellington forum provides an opportunity to enable the private and public sector to come together, learn from each other and approach mutual challenges and resulting solutions which can contribute in a positive way to the broader industry environment and present a vision for the future.”
