“SEPA RON” – the new fuss in the Romanian banking industry, but for us just a step towards greater things

What is everybody talking about these days in the Romanian financial environment?

Missing Sibos already?

A long way to the Land of the Rising Sun, and an even longer way back home. But we are home, catching our breath after a very busy week at Sibos Osaka.

Initially it was just going to be an event meant to officially launch the FinTP project & the FINkers United community.

It changed the way we approach events, we now look at enabling communication & interactivity between participants with far greater care than before.

Here's a short preview of that great day:
