Introduction

Rapid changes in digital technology are adding endless possibilities for financial industry across the continent!


Meanwhile, however, around 51% of the adult population in Southern Africa is still unbanked and unable to enjoy the benefits and changes that financial services bring to life. As a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices technology company that has been deeply involved in the Southern Africa market for a long time, we believe that only cooperation, interaction of advantages, and capability sharing can clear the fog of uncertainty and use technology to boost the development of the financial industry in the post-epidemic era.


“Inclusive Finance, Tech for Good”, Huawei Intelligent Finance Summit 2022 @ Southern Africa will invite industry leaders, opinion leaders, academic experts, and innovation practitioners from Southern Africa, and to present vivid practices in the financial industry. We look forward to working with you to discuss business transformation and architecture transformation in the financial industry under the general trend of inclusive finance, so that financial services can benefit more people in Africa.


On April 29, 2022, we sincerely look forward to meeting you at Port Louis, Mauritius to Create New Value Together!

Serving the Unbanked, Fighting Poverty

Today, Huawei FinTech provides inclusive digital financial services to 300 million unbanked people worldwide. Huawei FinTech is also the foundation for the development of a range of partnerships with Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) and financial institutions, with the aim of alleviating — then eliminating — poverty.

What is Huawei FinTech Solution?

Quite simply, the Huawei FinTech Solution provides convenient and comprehensive financial services for individuals and MSMEs through mobile apps, both Android and iOS. In short, if there's a mobile communications signal, financial services are available.

Through mobile communications technologies and digital operations platforms, the solution builds a new digital financial service ecosystem. This ecosystem allows partners to develop applications for diverse industries, laying a robust foundation for ubiquitous digital financial services. This not only improves digital services across industries, it also bridges the digital divide between industries and economic sectors, improving productivity across society.

By the close of 2020, the Huawei FinTech Solution had been adopted by more than 30 licensed digital financial service providers across the world, from Kenya's M-PESA and bKash in Bangladesh, to Vodacom Tanzania, Indonesia's Telkomsel, Pakistan's JazzCash, and KBZPay in Myanmar. And Huawei is continuing to expand its network of financial inclusion, to provide users with sustainable access to basic financial services and, in doing so, improve their lives.
