The Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury, Mr Christopher Hui, today (August 10) visited Cyberport to keep abreast of the latest developments in the field of fintech.
Mr Hui visited Wizpresso amongst other fintech companies supported and nurtured by Cyberport. Accompanied by the Chief Executive Officer of Hong Kong Cyberport Management Company Limited, Mr Peter Yan, Mr Hui gained first-hand experience of the practical application of fintech products developed by the enterprises. He also exchanged views with our Founder and CEO, Calvin Cheng, to learn how FinTech and regulators can work together to drive technological adoption in Hong Kong.
Mr Hui said, "The Government attaches great importance to fintech development, and has been encouraging financial institutions to collaborate with fintech enterprises to promote digitalisation of financial services. I am pleased to see that many local start-ups have successfully developed innovative and practical fintech solutions, which have made important contributions in driving financial inclusion. Some enterprises have expanded their services to the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area as well as Southeast Asia. It is encouraging to see their flourishing development."
"Talent development and retainment is a priority for Hong Kong so FinTech companies can continue to hire the best people to innovate and create best-in-class solutions that can benefit the Greater Bay Area (GBA) and Asia." said Calvin.
