With the joint effort between the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and the Hong Kong Institute of Bankers (HKIB), the Future Banking Bridging Programme 2022 (FBBP 2022), a 3-day programme scheduled on 22 & 29 October 2022 and 11 November 2022, was concluded with great success and received much appreciation from participants. This remarkable event would not have been possible without the tremendous support from the HKMA, 6 supporting banks and 11 universities.
The objective of the FBBP is to offer university students a first-hand experience of banking as well as training in a few key areas, i.e. ESG, Fintech and other areas of future banking, which are important to growth engines of the banking sector in the near future. We are sure the students had many takeaways from the programme. We are looking forward to witnessing its continuous achievements with you all in the coming year.
Stay tuned for The Future Banking Bridging Programme 2023!
