DIFC agrees partnership with Mena FinTech Association

Friday, 05 07 2021, Category: Technology, Country: Middle East
Dubai International Financial Centre has teamed up with the Mena FinTech Association (MFTA) to develop an innovation forum and other initiatives to advance the financial technology sector in the region.

The entities will develop and publish joint research on various topics and also offer courses through the DIFC Academy, according to a joint statement on Tuesday.

“We are continuously evaluating the FinTech landscape to identify new opportunities and address emerging challenges,” Arif Amiri, chief executive of the DIFC Authority, said. "Through our agreement with MFTA, we collaborate to create a roadmap for FinTech entrepreneurs by offering insights on the future of finance.”

Founded in 2018, the MFTA is a not-for-profit group set up to represent the growing number of FinTech firms in the Middle East and North Africa region. It has worked with regulators and policy makers with a view to offering a regional voice for the industry.

The partnership with Dubai's financial free zone includes the foundation of a DIFC Innovation Panel, an invitation-only group whose founder members include Ebury, Checkout, Tarabut Gateway, Coinmena, Ripple, Baraka and Aura Insurance, among others. Its role will be to provide advice and guidance on how to develop and build a thriving FinTech ecosystem.
