WAIFC participated in the Dubai Fintech Summit

WAIFC Engages Sustainable Future with FinTech

Last week's Dubai Fintech Summit marked a significant milestone in the intersection of financial technology and global financial policies. The World Alliance of International Financial Centers (WAIFC) is pleased to reflect on the insightful discussions and innovative ideas presented at the summit.


Dr. Jochen Biedermann

A standout event was the Fireside Chat featuring Dr. György Matolcsy, Governor of the Magyar Nemzeti Bank (Central Bank of Hungary), moderated by Dr. Jochen Biedermann, our Managing Director. The dialogue centered on the proactive role central banks play in promoting sustainability and supporting the burgeoning sector of financial technology. Governor Matolcsy eloquently shared his perspective on how these institutions are pivotal in fostering economic growth and stability in an increasingly digital world.

The discussion also delved into the opportunities and challenges posed by Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs), including the digital euro. These digital assets are becoming crucial in modern financial systems, offering potential benefits such as enhanced transaction efficiency and improved access to financial services. However, they also pose significant regulatory and operational challenges that must be carefully navigated.

Our Managing Director facilitated a compelling conversation that highlighted technological advancements and underscored the importance of sustainability in finance. The audience gained valuable insights into how central banks can leverage FinTech to drive eco-friendly initiatives and promote sustainable development across the globe.

The Dubai Fintech Summit has once again proven to be a cornerstone event for financial experts, policymakers, and innovators. It provides a unique platform for discussing the transformative power of technology in finance and financial governance's essential role in shaping the future of our global economy.

We thank Dr. György Matolcsy for his invaluable contributions to the discussion and look forward to further collaborations that pave the way for a sustainable and technologically advanced financial future.
