Smart ABC Cross-Sectoral Debate : Safe, Smart and Inclusive Finance for Citizens – Leaders Session
Tuesday, September 26, 2017, 1:15 PM - 2:30 PM, Room 203

Smart digital financial services are key to the operations of many aspects of smart cities. This session brings together city mayors and local government officials with digital finance experts and leaders to explore how smart digital financial services can enhance the lives of citizens across all areas of smart urban living from smart transportation to smart health, smart homes, smart utilities and smart public services. How can we make digital financial services secure to minimize security risks and the threat of attack? What are the barriers to adopting or increasing the use of smart banking in terms of standardization, regulation, security and infrastructure? Where will the greatest impact of fintech and disruptive financial services be felt – and will smart financial services increase inclusivity by bringing more and more of the unbanked into financial systems across smart cities?
