Sino-UK FinTech Ecosystem

Introduction

COVID-19 has increased the prioritization of Financial Technology (FinTech). However, it has also posed a number of key challenges. Who owns the data? How do we embrace Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC)? What are key factors for building FinTech Ecosystem? This online forum will look into these questions to explore potential China-UK collaboration in FinTech. Entrepreneurs and scholars from both sides will exchange ideas and draw insights into effective approaches to overcoming challenges, and guest speakers will bring you a panoramic view of FinTech ecosystems and shed light on seeking opportunities for accelerating the network across ecosystems that will shape the future.
