The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the State Bank of Viet Nam (SBV) forged a new partnership to encourage fintech innovation and to strengthen cooperation in banking supervision.
According to an announcement, the new memorandum of understanding (MOU) between MAS and SBV will facilitate joint innovation projects between the two countries, help FinTech companies in one jurisdiction better understand the regulatory regime and opportunities in the other, and encourage the sharing of information on emerging FinTech trends and developments.
