The APEC Fintech E-Payment Readiness Index report assesses the level of readiness of the 21 APEC economies to engage in, adopt and reap the broad range of benefits that e-payments enable.
The newly updated APEC Fintech E-payment Readiness Index: Ecosystem Assessment and Status Report assesses the level of readiness and future potential of the 21 APEC economies to engage in, adopt and reap the broad range of economic and societal benefits that e-payments hold.
The Report is a joint study by the Australian APEC Study Centre at RMIT University and TRPC, a specialist technology research consultancy, based out of Singapore, with offices in Hong Kong, Beijing and Sydney. PayPal generously supported development of the report.
The APEC Fintech E-Payment Readiness Index was constructed to gauge the readiness and capacity of each of the 21 APEC economies to engage in e-payment (including both e-payment and m- payment services), and to further develop their overall e-payment ecosystem. The report was undertaken with a view to testing the assumption that there is a strong and growing link between e-payment penetration and economic growth.
