UK-India Fintech Sectors to Drive Growth, Prosperity of Both Countries: Alderman Vincent Keaveny, Lord Mayor, City of London

MUMBAI, India, Sept. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- In his keynote address at the Global Fintech Fest 2022 (GFF 2022) in Mumbai today, Alderman Vincent Keaveny, The Rt Hon. The Lord Mayor, City of London, emphasized the need for greater cooperation between India and the UK for a flourishing fintech ecosystem in both the countries.

"The City of London Corporation is committed to deepening the terms between the businesses of London and India. With our combined expertise, the UK and Indian financial sectors continue to drive growth and prosperity in our respective countries. The UK currently holds the top spot as Europe's fintech hub. India, on the other hand, is on the verge of becoming Asia's top fintech hub with the highest adoption of fintech products and the emergence of many unicorns. Thus, fintech will play a major role in building a sustainable future for all," said Mr. Keaveny.

India has been one of the most important markets for UK-base fintech firms. Talking about the country's fintech opportunity and the upcoming Free Trade Agreement, Mr. Keaveny said, "The Free Trade Agreement will pave a way for significantly stronger business relations between the two countries."

The Lord Mayor referred to the UK-India Vision 2030 as the bridge between these two powerhouses of the global fintech landscape. "The UK-India 2030 vision is the roadmap for revitalizing a dynamic connection between our people, trade and investments and technological collaborations," he said.
