Turkey is aiming to be the world's first cashless country by 2023, and their FinTech markets are estimated to be worth $15 billion and growing at an annual average of 14%. Turkey's FinTech market has a high potential due to its advantageous geo-proximity to leading FinTech hubs like London and Dubai, their young tech savvy population and their sound banking industry.
The Turkey's FinTech market has a high potential due to its advantageous geo-proximity to leading FinTech hubs like London and Dubai, which includes their young tech savvy population and their sound banking industry. This enables them to be a very important strategic trade partner to Singapore. It was truly an eventful night yesterday, organised by Singapore FinTech Association (SFA) & KOOPHub, which focused on connecting the Singapore & Turkey Fintech. Valuable market insights on both country's Fintech key drivers were shared, ending off with a networking session for the participants at the end.
