An estimated 4 million people join the digital economy each month in South East Asia, yet three out of four people still do not have bank accounts. Whilst they may not want a traditional account, many want some of the functionality to be able to do the things they need every day: travel, eat and drink, and spend time with their families. Solving these challenges requires a different approach. Hear how Anthony Tan, CEO and co-founder Grab, and Jason Thompson Managing Director GrabPay South East Asia, are developing a platform to solve the most important everyday problems for South East Asia’s emerging new customers and create income for 100 million people across the region by the end of 2020.
