Fintech in China and Implications for the Australian Businesses
Digital payment and big data are profoundly reshaping the way Chinese consumers spend and invest. This will have far reaching impact for global companies that are selling to Chinese consumers, trading with Chinese partners, as well as facilitating overseas expansion of Chinese companies. Qiao Ma is well placed to provide insights into this exciting and fast-evolving trend after spending 7 years investing extensively in China and technology companies globally. She will demonstrate with real life examples how digital payments work in China and how Australian businesses can capitalize in this tremendous opportunity.
