GCash represents PH at London Tech Week 2022

Leading e-wallet super app GCash was the only Philippine fintech company to participate in the recently concluded London Tech Week 2022, the largest technology festival in Europe highlighting digital innovations.

GCash president and CEO Martha Sazon held talks with UK Trade Commissioner for Asia Pacific Natalie Black CBE and UK Secretary of State for Trade and President of the Board of Trade Anne-Marie Trevelyan.

The GCash official also held a separate meeting with UK Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport Rt. Hon. Nadine Dorries MP.

Sazon said it’s a “rare privilege” to have been invited to an exclusive dialogue with esteemed UK government officials.

“We at GCash are humbled and honored to hear how impressed the UK officials are with what GCash has achieved. Because of that, they believe in the opportunity the Philippines has to offer in the tech space,” she said.

Meanwhile, Natalie Black, Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner to Asia Pacific, said the Philippines “is an important partner to the UK.”

“With our trading relationship worth nearly £2 billion in 2021. And with total tech spending in the Philippines reaching more than £6 billion last year, I believe our digital trade partnership will only grow deeper and stronger with the help of companies like GCash,” she said.

GCash continues to expand its services as it aims to bring financial inclusion to more Filipinos. The platform, which started as an e-payments app, now provides financial services like savings, investments, and loans to 60 million Filipinos.
