Additionally, the fintech collaboration agreement will enable the two authorities to conduct joint training sessions.

NBC deputy governorNeav Chanthana said: “The NBC and MAS have reached a new step of financial cooperation in the area of financial innovation through this MoU.

“This will also allow us to share experiences and information related to FinTech to better manage and reap the benefit from the new innovation in financial technology in order to enhance payment system and promote financial inclusion.”
