MALAYSIA’S Financial Sector Blueprint 2022-2026 will be launched on the first day of MyFintech Week 2022 (MyFW 2022).

MyFW 2022, to be held from Jan 24 until Jan 28, is expected to cover a wide range of pressing issues facing the future of the financial industry.

Themed “Advancing Digitalisation for Recovery, Sustainability, Inclusion”, it is anchored on seven priorities: Sustainability, Resiliency, New Realities for Finance, Economy, Financial Health and Inclusion, Start-ups and Regulations.

“Experts from around the world will be sharing their perspectives at MyFW 2022. Their insights can inform and inspire action on critical issues that the financial sector needs to tackle,” Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) assistant Governor Adnan Zaylani Mohamad Zahid said in a statement yesterday.

“The financial sector needs to be well-positioned to support our economic transformation towards a more innovative, sustainable and digital future,” he added.

MyFW 2022 will feature more than 100 speakers including Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz, BNM Governor Tan Sri Nor Shamsiah Mohd Yunus, United Nations development programme administrator Achim Steiner, editorial board and editor-at-large chairperson Gillian Tett, and Google LLC chief analytics evangelist Kevin Hartman among others.

The main conference from Day 1 to Day 4 will feature a combination of keynote addresses, tech talks, panel sessions and fireside chats on pertinent issues affecting Malaysia’s future financial and economic landscape.

This includes climate resiliency, the future of money and emerging technologies.

The conference also brings highly popular workshop-style sessions through a series of masterclasses with industry experts to deep-dive into specific subject matters.

Beyond the main conference and masterclasses, MyFW 2022 also provides opportunities for businesses to access support for growth and innovation on Day 4 and 5.

Among others, start-ups can schedule one-on-one consulting sessions on regulatory and compliance issues.

At the same time, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and businesses can access dedicated channels of support covering issues such as SME digitalisation, talent, and funding and investments.

MyFW 2022 accelerator programmes will also feature 15 innovations aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals, with live demos on Day 4.
