The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) is an integral part of the Hong Kong SAR Government, and serves as Hong Kong’s central banking institution. The HKMA is committed to promoting currency stability, maintaining Hong Kong’s status as an international financial centre, including the maintenance and development of Hong Kong’s financial infrastructure.
As HKMA is facilitating development on a blockchain-based platform to further digitise trade finance, we produced a video to help the viewers connect the dots as to how trade finance first came to be and how it is now utilised with the latest technology. We first used an illustration style to explain the history of trade finance and progressed to 2D animation, using blue and bright turquoise green to symbolise the current modern times. Representatives of different stakeholders joined in the conversation so as to offer a human touch behind the scenes and that different think tanks are joining forces to solve problems for emerging markets.
The winners for the FinTech competition as a part of the platform were also announced, enabling viewers to see the platform as a substantial initiative bringing change onto the FinTech scene in Hong Kong.
