From Rupiah to Ringgit | Payment Services Regulation in Southeast Asia

November 13, 2019

We are delighted to invite you to a presentation and interactive panel discussion examining the payments landscape across the vast Southeast Asian region. As Singapore lies on the cusp of introducing its Payment Services Act, this session will focus on payments from a regulatory perspective. Our speakers will discuss the regulatory regime in their jurisdictions and highlight any challenges, pressures and potential pitfalls.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Licensing
  • Regulatory and compliance costs
  • Talent and manpower resources
  • Related regulatory issues
  • Emerging trends

Following the panel discussion, there will be an opportunity for further sharing of ideas over drinks. We hope that you’ll be able to join us.
