Fintech, payments, and CBDC in China – Part 2
Bhavin Patel, head of fintech at OMFIF, speaks with Douglas Arner, Kerry Holdings Professor in Law and director of the Asian Institute of International Law at the University of Hong Kong, and Charles Chang, deputy dean of academics, professor of finance and director of the fintech research centre at Fanhai International School of Finance, Fudan University.
In this two-part series they discuss the Chinese fintech space, focusing on payments, regulations and the Chinese central bank digital currency project. In the second part of their discussions, they discuss China’s digital currency/electronic payment. They look at how effective it may be, how it will integrate with a market dominated by the private sector, its possible disintermediation impact on incumbents, as well as how it can become a cross-border central bank digital currency.
