The inaugural Money20/20 Asia conference wrapped up its three-day event at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center in Bangkok from 23rd to 25th April, featuring fintech discussions, international networking and collaborations.

The conference drew over 3,000 participants from 87 countries, including 24 nations across the Asia Pacific region.

Notably, the event featured over 250 speakers from Asia, with 45% being female executives and more than 60% holding C-suite positions.

Key topics addressed at Money20/20 Asia included AI, cross-border payments, open banking, digital assets, and Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs).

A highlight was the announcement of a partnership between KASIKORNBANK and J.P. Morgan, which unveiled Project Carina, a blockchain-based initiative aimed at reducing cross-border payment times from 72 hours to just five minutes.

Regulatory discussions also took center stage, with significant involvement from APAC regulators. Dr. Wong of SC Malaysia discussed the country’s approach to integrating innovation within its capital markets, emphasizing investor protection and technological collaboration to enhance financial access and societal benefits.

Money20/20 Asia will return to the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center in April 2025. Registration for the 2025 conference is now open for those interested here.
