Charlotte Miu, Head of Hong Kong / Manager at LATTICE80, then added:
“Hong Kong is the world’s freest economy and has long been established as a top financial centre of the world. The Hong Kong Government started initiatives to boost the innovation and technology industry only 2 decades ago and with the emergence of Blockchain technology, it is only natural for Hong Kong to dial into the Fintech industry and make its impact. I am impressed with the results SuperCharger has had in the past 3 years, promoting Hong Kong as a centre of excellence for Fintech. Our partnership with SuperCharger definitively strengthens KAYA Network. The bridge we form between Singapore and Hong Kong will offer startups a wider reach to opportunities and talent from each other’s markets; mutually benefiting both nations in terms of innovation. I also look forward to working with SuperCharger on Impact Blockchain initiatives, in particular, developing human capital.”
