Matthew Gamser, CEO of the SME Finance Forum, participated in the “Financial Technology Development and Innovative Applications” panel at the 2023 APFF Asia-Pacific Financial Forum on 17 March 2023 in Beijing, China.
“It was a great pleasure to speak on this panel at the APFF Asia-Pacific Financial Forum in Beijing,” Gamser said. “My panel, which included member Franklin Wang from Linklogis, focused on how innovation in fintech can help promote more inclusive and sustainable growth. My remarks focused on how fintech is showing how traditional obstacles to serving SMEs responsibly, and at scale, can be removed. At the same time, I stressed the importance of a positive enabling environment that both encouraged new innovators into the market, but also established fair and equitable access to the new digital data that underlies the fintech innovations. Many thanks to the APFF organizers of this meeting – I’m sorry only that I couldn’t be there in person!”
