CLPS Incorporation (Nasdaq: CLPS) noted on December 27 that Srustijeet Mishra, CLPS Singapore CEO, represented the firm as a guest speaker at the SYNC SEA 2019 Summit, which took place on December 6, 2019, in Singapore.
During the event, Mishra reportedly discussed the firm’s current efforts related to assisting in the development of Fintech talent in the Southeast Asia region.
“With the shortfall of Fintech talent in Southeast Asia, CLPS Singapore aims to develop more talent to fill the gap along the way. This effort is now feasible as the Company has further expanded its business operation in the region.”
A report released by Michael Page Singapore, a recruitment company, reveals that around 94% of local financial technology firms surveyed said that the country is currently facing a major shortage of experienced Fintech talent.

“Southeast Asia’s digital transformation is underway, but the shortage of homegrown tech talent is one of the most pressing issues in the region.”
