02dec1:00 pm4:00 pmRobert Greene Discusses China's Fintech Future

Event Details

Robert Greene participates in a Protocol panel discussion examining how China will shape the future of fintech in the medium and long term — and what does that mean for the existing financial system?

China is where you’ll find ubiquitous payment via QR codes, credit ratings built from whole cloth by Big Tech using Big Data and a central bank digital currency with use cases well beyond China’s borders. In this event, panelists will talk about Beijing’s latest moves to test the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), what is known already about how the CBDC does (and doesn’t) work and in-country fintech innovations to adopt globally.

Speakers include:

  • Rebecca Liao, Co-Founder and COO, Skuchain
  • Robert Greene, Vice President and Chief of Staff, Patomak Global Partners and Nonresident Scholar, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace’s Cyber Policy Initiative and Asia Program
  • Xiaomeng Lu, Director, Geo-Technology, Eurasia Group
  • Davide Wertime, Executive Director, Protocol (moderator)

The discussion happens virtually on December 2, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern. Learn more about it and RSVP here.
