Event Details

In the past few months, we have experienced how the Covid-19 outbreak tested our crisis management preparedness. The pandemic has since changed our lifestyle. In the coming months, we are expecting to see the pressures of the situation to act as a catalyst to drive fundamental change in the way we run business. On the other hand, while Southeast Asia's leading digital companies like Gojek, Grab have recently raised investments for their financial inclusion expansion across the region, Myanmar has also proved its readiness for mass adoption of digital payments. How are SMEs in Myanmar that have made significant investments in digital transformation ahead of the COVID-19 fairing at this time? What were the efforts they have made and what are their next steps for the digitisation of payment? This webinar will cover strategic views from major players and experts in this field.
