World Financial Innovation Series: INDONESIA
While Indonesia has been one of the fastest-growing digital economies in Asia, financial services, in particular, are now experiencing the benefits of these technologies enhancing the experience of financial institutions and their customers. To accelerate this innovation drive in the BFSI sector, the Financial Services Authority (OJK) is playing a tremendous role to accommodate digital transformation with favorable regulations. Indonesia, a country with 270 million people, has over 50% of the population still unbanked due to geographical and infrastructural barriers.
As per the World Bank, digitizing financial services as well as payments in the private sector alone could increase bank account ownership by 29%. In addition, a growing number of Digital Banks, Fintech Firms, e-Money Providers, Digital Financial Services, and Neo Banks, will further increase banking equity and encourage innovation in the financial sector.
To address the opportunities presented by digital transformation in the BFSI sector and following the success of the past conferences dedicated to Indonesia, Tradepass is proud to host the 8th Edition World Financial Innovation Series (WFIS 2021): INDONESIA, scheduled to take place virtually on 1st – 2nd December 2021. The conference will consist of two knowledge-packed days filled with in depth fireside chats, roundtable discussions, panels, keynotes, and much more. Bringing together over 1000 technology and business heads from 100+ leading Banks, Insurance & Micro-Finance institutions across Indonesia to virtually connect, collaborate and explore a wide range of new-age-future tech solutions for the growing BFSI sector

ASEAN’s digital economy is set to reach USD1 trillion in value by 2030 which could facilitate rapid economic growth on the heels of the recent development of a Work Plan to implement the ASEAN E-Commerce Agreement.
The Work Plan, endorsed by ASEAN Economic Ministers last September 2021, seeks to establish a common and harmonized approach to operationalize the commitments and effectively deliver the value of the Agreement in transforming ASEAN into a leading digital community.

Thai Roundtable: Thailand & Sustainable Global Supply Chains
Global supply-chain sustainability is the impact a company’s supply chain makes in promoting human rights, fair labour practices, environmental progress and anti-corruption policies. Companies need to ensure their entire global supply chain is in order and increasingly they need to integrate sustainable choices into their supply-chain management. This has, and will increasingly, transform how companies do business.
It is a timely opportunity to understand more about sustainability initiatives in Thailand and how these build into more sustainable global supply chains. It will also reflect on Thailand’s commitment, and on-going initiatives, to reinforce cooperation with the EU on a rules-based international order and a more sustainable trade and investment environment in the context of the EU Indo-Pacific strategy.
