Asia remains the leading growth region for digital payments[1], largely driven by demand for financial inclusion of the unbanked population. Notably, in the ASEAN region, mobile payment gross transaction value is expected to surge by over 25% CAGR until FY2027 to reach USD$109 billion[2], spelling tremendous opportunities for stakeholders in the digital payment industry.
