|Dear APABI members:
TABF was truly honored to participate in the 2022 APABI Conference & Meeting in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, hosted by the Banking and Finance Association. We had the opportunity to learn about Mongolia’s banking sector, the expectations of a new generation of banking staff, and customer service in a remote era.
In terms of concrete results, the meeting decided to add biannual remote forums in the years between meetings, helping members stay in touch in the digital era. Furthermore, Mumbai was selected as the location of the 2024 conference. Congratulations to the Indian Institute of Banking and Finance!
Meanwhile, emerging markets have been hit over the past few months by the double whammy of rising global interest rates, coupled with increasing commodity prices. Many of the worst-hit markets are in Asia. This will continue to be a topic to watch until the rate cycle ends. You can read about this topic in our Taiwan Banker magazine below.
Following the successful end of this conference, I look forward to more exciting possibilities working together with APABI.
Hank C.C. Huang
President, Taiwan Academy of Banking and Finance (TABF)
