Joint Press Release Bilateral Meeting between Bank of Thailand and Hong Kong Monetary Authority
Mr. Sethaput Suthiwartnarueput, Governor of the Bank of Thailand (BOT), and Mr. Eddie Yue, Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), together with their delegations held a bilateral meeting between the two institutions on 29 January 2024 in Bangkok, Thailand.
During the meeting, the BOT and the HKMA engaged in wide-ranging discussions on the use of local currency in cross-border trades, financial digitalisation and fintech, and green and sustainable finance as well as potential initiatives to enhance cooperation between the financial sectors in Thailand and Hong Kong going forward.
In this occasion, Mr. Yue also used the Faster Payment System (FPS) x PromptPay Link to pay for goods and services in Thailand. The launch of the FPS x PromptPay Link since December last year allows users to pay by scanning Thai PromptPay or HK FPS QR codes, supporting instant payment to merchants.
