Highlights from the Forum

"The forum was very informative in terms of content about card payments and related digital finance matters. At the same time, as an attendee I found it to be a great opportunity for networking and cooperating"
Chau Pham, Senior of Digital Bank Project, TPBank

"I think the topics were very relevant to the Vietnamese market, especially with the launch of the national debit scheme. Other topics could also help shape the e-commerce market within the country. There is big trend of banks taking a bigger role in this space (Telcos and FinTech companies are normally the players in this space)"
Jeremy Ng, Senior Marketing Manager, Financial, Entrust Datacard

"It was very good to see Vietnam's plan for migration. It was also interesting to see new FinTech companies such as WeChat discussing on views and ideas"
Andy Chew, Executive Director, Eastcompeace (SG)

"The forum met my expectations. All the major banks and players were present in the forum. The content was well prepared and has provided me with much insight into the trends in Asia Pacific countries"
Daniel Lim, Vice President, Sales APAC, Smartrac Group


The 7th Asian Payment Card Forum provided a unique opportunity for decision-makers from banks, payment schemes, retailers and others to learn more about recent technologies and solutions available for the consumer payments business.
