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 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 the 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.
