  • Mobile payments and cross-border are hygiene factors in HK, so will be expected to be standard offering – what is the future for these products?  
  • Next phase on Virtual Banking licences (Stored Value Facility) will drive customer service so Open Banking will be adopted and ISO20022 is already accepted coding – What Open Banking services are expected to be adopted?  
  • Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) have developed a multi-year digital programme which will encourage innovation with crypto currency and blockchain along with other emerging payments solutions – What is the likely speed of adoption and change?

Specific areas the presentation could include:  

  • Smart banking through the virtual banking licence program has opened-up the market and encouraged collaboration between banks and FinTech’s (Development of Payment Rails) – How does HKMA see this expand further?  
  • Data localisation restrictions and data management are under increased pressure. DP laws currently have no restrictions covering the transfer of personal data, so expect data controls to be tightened with Section 33 being adopted, which will further encourage ID schemes – What further activity is planned?  
  • HKMA has conducted Blockchain pilot including a joint project with the Bank of Thailand on implementing Central Bank Digital Currency in cross-border payments –How will this operate in HK and across APAC?
