Region APAC

Governments and central banks across the Asia Pacific are leading standardisation and interoperability initiatives. Fintechs and commercial banks are developing cross-border platforms to facilitate faster payments and lower transaction fees. Even traditional institutions are developing innovative services to drive revenue and deliver more seamless customer experiences.

It is no surprise the region saw 377 billion mobile wallet transactions worth a total of $4.1 trillion in 2020, according to the Boku Mobile Wallets Report 2021. The volume is still growing in leaps and bounds with the adoption of 5G, mobile commerce and other platforms that rely on digital payments. And where there is that much money...cybercrime, too, is on the rise.

Payments Summit APAC 2021, in association with Akamai Technologies, will discuss and debate the future of the payment landscape. In this highly interactive session, you’ll gain a detailed understanding of what banks and e-commerce platforms need to do to prepare for the future of digital payments, including:
• New trends that are creating opportunities for new payment experiences
• Building resilient digital payment systems and infrastructure
• Strategies to effectively detect, prevent fraud, and reduce losses while minimising customer friction
• Leveraging and monetising data as alternative revenue stream
