The two-day Asian Pacific Association of Banking Institutes (APABI) Conference promises to be a more engaging forum for regulators, industry leaders and community leaders to share perspectives and debate on the major issues affecting the banking industry.
Institute of Bankers Malaysia (IBBM) chief executive Tay Kay Luan said that delegates would discuss or even disagree on a range of issues that matters to the banking industry during the conference.
"This conference will address a multiplicity of contemporary and relevant issues, from the reality of an integrated Asean market to debates, on whether a regulatory banking means a safer banking or more costly business to its operations," said Tay at the opening of the conference today.
The event, hosted by IBBM, will also have international thought leaders who will share their views and perspectives on how markets can further differentiate themselves, what constitutes a responsible banking and how this is different from consumer responsibility, he said.
Themed “Waves of Change, Oceans of Opportunities”, the conference has attracted 500 delegates and 21 speakers and moderators from 14 countries. – Bernama, October 7, 2013.
