According to FinTech Alliance.PH Founding Chairman Lito Villanueva, the Philippines Country Pavilion serves as a venue for more engagements and collaboration with key players in various industries worldwide, including the financial technology sector.

“With the support of all stakeholders and, of course, the national government, we are very much positive about having to further scale the exponential growth of digital transactions in the Phlippines towards shared prosperity amongst Filipinos,” he conveys.

Prior to the opening, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. delivered his first-ever hologram speech before the participants of the SFF 2023, where he underscored the government’s commitment to strengthen digital technology.
