As Convoy continues to build its knowledge base and relationships in the fintech world, it felt incumbent on us to share these insights with the wider Hong Kong community.

We aim to bring these world class platforms and services to the Hong Kong market, and hope the dialogue we create today will inspire more international dialogue and collaboration between fintech stakeholders in Hong Kong and their counterparts in other fintech hubs.
