Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and Switzerland join fintech forces

The FinTech Association of Hong Kong (FTAHK) has signed three separate Memoranda of Understanding with the Singapore FinTech Association, the Swiss Finance + Technology Association and the Taiwan FinTech Industry Development Association. These agreements were signed during the Hong Kong FinTech week, which ended on the 27th October.

FTAHK and its partners will support the fintech environment in the region, as places like Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan  become increasingly important fintech hubs. The associations will also participate in each other’s events, and working their way around Europe’s fintech hubs, particularly in Switzerland, the partnerships will help support a more connected and co-ordinated approach to fintech development across the world.

“Collaboration is crucial to the development of FinTech, not just in Hong Kong but globally,” said Musheer  Ahmed, interim general manager of FTAHK. “It is also one of the founding principles of FTAHK.  Our partnerships with the Singapore FinTech Association, the FinTech Industry Development Association in Taiwan and the Swiss Finance + Technology Association are excellent examples of how we want to work with all relevant parties to the benefit of the wider community.”
