GCash mounts FinTech workshops

GCASH is aiming to level up its partnership with the public sector to accelerate the adoption of cashless payments through a year-long workshop series. The fintech player is poised to host the “GCash for the Nation” annual conference and workshop series throughout 2023, highlighting its long-standing partnership with various private sector groups and its vision of achieving ‘Finance for All’. The workshop series will bring together key public sector stakeholders and tackle the future of digital financial services in pursuit of financial inclusion and fostering economic growth. Recognizing the need to promote massive digital adoption in the country, the first workshop of the year-long program is entitled “Breaking Barriers toward a Digital Ecosystem.” It will focus on government regulations, new policies and guidelines, as well as infrastructure and cybersecurity developments that will enable safe and secure adoption of digital payments. It will be held at the Manila Diamond Hotel, Roxas Blvd., Pasay City. Succeeding workshops will be held throughout the year and include immersive talks and discussions centered on three key issues in the fintech industry — building capabilities, resilience and sustainability.
