Hong Kong is one of the top global financial centers and its financial services industry contributes 23% of the total GDP. It has also emerged as the leading FinTech hub in APAC, which is key to cementing Hong Kong's regional and international competitiveness in the long run.
Since 2017, Google Hong Kong is committed to supporting the city's smart city development and businesses' digital transformation. In 2022, Google Hong Kong launched the "Advancing Hong Kong's FinTech Ecosystem" report, as part of the Smarter Digital City report series, to serve as a valuable guide to ecosystem players to propel the industry forward.
Join us to learn more about Google Hong Kong's Smarter Digital City initiative and the Fintech-themed report, and join the discussion of how we pivot the fintech industry in Hong Kong.
