The Asia Pacific Remittances Innovation Awards (RemTECH Awards) for 2018 have just been announced and we will give you more information in the weeks to come. In the inaugural Global RemTECH Awards in 2017 we had 36 entrants admitted into competition, 11 awards were given and 10 Mentions were given by the Judges. Check the Book we distributed and the video of the results. The video at your left is the GFRID 2018 invitation by the Central Bank of Malaysia.
The 2018 Asia Pacific competition will soon be open to contestants from the Asia Pacific Region. Entries received will collect votes from the public for a “popularity” award that will measure the social media & networking capability of the contestatnt. A judging panel of industry colleagues wil select the winners and might award mentions to entries that they feel should be highlighted.
The RemTECH Awards were developed by remittance expert Hugo Cuevas-Mohr in partnership with Mohr World Consulting and IMTC Conferences to showcase the most innovative and outstanding technological ideas designed to improve remittance services worldwide. The 2018 Asia Pacific RemTECH awards will be hosted by the GFRID2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a joint partnership between the Central Bank of Malaysia, IFAD and the World Bank. The idea is to showcase companies, groups, collectives or individuals that come up with ground-breaking solutions that benefit the market ecosystem, improving transparency, speed, cost and reliability for the companies and end-users that send and receive remittances every day.
