In a statement today, BNM said high-level policy makers and experts from the region and the OECD shared experiences and challenges in promoting financial literacy and inclusion, ensuring consumer and data protection, as well as regulating digital financial assets in the digital era.
“Policy and regulatory insights on various issues such as trade-offs between technology-driven innovation and consumer interests, and factors supporting and hampering the adoption of digital financial services in Asia-Pacific, were also discussed,” it said.
During the conference, the OECD took the opportunity to launch a report entitled “Cryptoassets in Asia”, which explores the attitudes, behaviours and experiences of financial consumers with regard to cryptoassets in Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam.
