"In Southeast Asia, mobile money is moving at an amazing pace with fintech companies WeChat and AliPay in China leading the way. It's no longer just about Mobile Money and more about the fintech companies in the region creating better value propositions and relevant services around messaging tools and social engagement," said Stephen Swan, Head of Product & Digital for Myanmar-based Wave Money. "Grab is another example, whereas it first started out as a cab hailing service to now providing a digital wallet in some countries that allows users to make instant purchases with their Grab credits while earning reward points for every transaction. The launch of the developer portal from Wave Money is in recognition of the fast-growing e-commerce sector in Myanmar and the company's commitment to provide fast, easy and safe financial services to a diverse range of customers including businesses in Myanmar."
Key event partners that will be exhibiting at the event include leading communications and media software and services provider Amdocs, and the blockchain-based microfinance and payments platform Everex.
Justin Ho, Vice President of Amdocs Mobile Financial Services, said, "The 9th Mobile Money & Agent Banking Summit 2018 presents a wonderful opportunity for us to meet with some of the most prominent players in the Emerging Markets financial and telecommunications and technology ecosystem, especially in the burgeoning Myanmar market. We look forward to brainstorming and sharing our insights and discussing how critical agent banking and open banking initiatives will play an important role in the coming years for financial and greater economic inclusion."
Conference organizer Magenta Global(Singapore)'s CEO, Maggie Tan, added, "The 2017 World Payments Report found that global digital transaction volumes grew 11.2% in the last year, reaching more than 433 billion, the highest growth of the past decade. Emerging economies such as Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, India, Bangladesh are implementing digital payment innovations.
