By Mohit Sagar

The Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) yesterday announced the inaugural Afro-Asia FinTech Festival, to be held in Nairobi, Kenya, from 15 to 16 July 2019. Jointly organised by the two central banks, the Festival – the first of its kind globally – will provide a platform for connections, collaborations and exchange of ideas between Africa and Asia. It will also further boost the FinTech ecosystems in the two regions.
