15th August 2018 marked a momentous occasion as the Cambodia Fintech Association (CFA) was officially launched. Panzer Technology attended the launch at the iconic Rosewood Hotel in Phnom Penh, together with our partners. Our Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Alan Wong was among the VIPs invited to grace this significant event as well as the ceremonial Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. We were also honored to attend the event together with Her Excellency, Mdm. Chea Serey, Assistant Governor and Director General of National Bank of Cambodia, His Excellency, Mr. Peter Sok Puthyvuth, Chairman of ICT Federation as well as Mr. Roy Teo, Executive Director from Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
CFA’s vice-president, Mr Eddie Lee mentioned at the event that fintech startups are starting to surface in Cambodia and that the country’s central bank has explored using blockchain to track interbank transactions.
This is a terrific piece of news as it indicates that even frontier countries like Cambodia are embracing new-wave technology; bringing us a step closer to changing cities around the world to be smarter, more secure and scalable.
