“Our two countries have always maintained close financial relations. Being located on different continents, we share many complementarities and have held financial dialogues and regulatory exchanges for years,” Heng said.

Digital and sustainability compose the next double helix, with Heng citing satellite imaging, the internet of things and AI as tools that aid the accuracy of environment, social, and governance data.
