The world has seen various open banking initiatives launched, and Hong Kong is no exception. With the launch of an Open API Framework in 2019, there was a strong driving force for banks to publish APIs for different financial products and services. The aim has been to improve the end-to-end customer experience and discover effective contextual financial scenarios.

The key to plugging into the digital ecosystem is APIs. This is enabled by the “API Stack”: the set of components, tools, people and processes to link your firm’s digital assets internally and externally.

API ecosystems across sectors are now building up from banking, insurance, payment, travel, retail and entertainment. Regulated enterprises are now working with innovative startups to form regulated, yet effective, business collaboration enabled by APIs. In 2020, Apidays is presenting its inaugural conference in Hong Kong to bring in industry thought leaders to share their latest insights.
