1st fintech initiatives meeting held

The Coordination Group on Implementation of Fintech Initiatives, chaired by Secretary for Financial Services & the Treasury Christopher Hui, convened its first meeting today.   During the meeting, representatives of the Government and financial regulators exchanged views on the latest fintech developments with those from the financial services sector, academia and research institutions.   Mr Hui said the group was established to holistically review and supervise the development of fintech in Hong Kong, covering various key areas including collaboration with the Mainland and overseas markets, financial infrastructures, regulatory regimes, cybersecurity, promotion, talent development and other cross-sectoral fintech co-ordination.   It aims to ensure the policy and regulations are proactive enough to promote further development of fintech in the city, he added.   The participants reviewed the overall landscape and development trend of fintech in Hong Kong and beyond. They also exchanged views on various initiatives in place to facilitate the incubation process of fintech products and enterprise financing through fintech, as well as to nurture fintech talent.   On the one-stop platform for fintech innovation supervisory co-operation being built by the Monetary Authority and the People's Bank of China in the form of a network link-up in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the participants noted that the two parties are working closely to finalise the implementation details as soon as possible.   They also learnt about the implementation status of the FinTech Virtual Lab launched by the Hong Kong Science & Technology Parks Corporation.   In addition, the authority briefed the participants on the implementation progress of the Commercial Data Interchange.
