In the afternoon of the same day, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between ASTRI and Electronic Transactions Development Agency (ETDA) for the establishment of strategic collaboration on R&D projects of FinTech. This is the first time for ASTRI to collaborate with an overseas organisation on R&D projects since its establishment in 2000, which signifies ASTRI’s leading position in FinTech research and applications.
Last but not the least, ASTRI has also staged an exhibition booth in the Thailand e-Commerce Week organised by ETDA held from 7-9 October to promote ASTRI’s latest R & D activities.
