SWIFT Business Forum Tokyo 2014

Report of event

In the welcome remarks, Chris Flanagan, Head of Markets & Initiatives emphasised that Tokyo remains a global financial centre and its role in driving change in the collaborative space remains key. He pointed to the fact that JASDEC's migration to ISO 20022 will drive deeper adoption for this international standard, setting the example not just for CSDs but for market infrastructures around the world. Chris also noted that Japan's growth cannot come only from within but depends on increasing its business across borders: "Japan's future is about a brighter domestic economy and also, critically, the next 30 years of internationalisation for financial institutions and corporations will be as important as or even more critical than the last 30."
