FinTech Regulatory Roundtable 2023

10/08/2023 @ 09:00 - 14:00

The Mauritian FinTech ecosystem launched the first FinTech regulatory roundtables in 2020 to open up important discussions around the key challenges and blockers for this industry to thrive.

In 2023, we aim to provide a recap of developments over the last three years, with the objective of assessing how far and how well things have progressed with regards to new processes, regulations and guidelines that have emerged from those. This would be an ideal post-budget opportunity for stakeholders of the ecosystem to come together, collaborate and discuss the future in depth.

The Regulatory Roundtable aims to provide a forum, conducted under the Chatham House Rule, whereby members of the Mauritius Africa FinTech Hub (MAFH) and individuals within the FinTech ecosystem can discuss contemporaneous topics of relevance to the FinTech industry with regulators, under. The overall objective of the Regulatory Roundtable is to accelerate the development of the FinTech industry through regulatory reforms. The group size is limited to 100 people max.

The individuals attending the Regulatory Roundtable will be spread across 10 different tables, with each table having the same agenda which will be managed by the moderator. The areas of discussion suggested under each topic are to be addressed at the discretion of the participants. However, we would stress that the discussion focuses on the topics chosen for this Regulatory Roundtable.

OVERALL LAYOUT PER TABLE: 7 participants, 1 regulator, 1 moderator and 1 transcriber.

Host/Moderators (5)

The moderators will support the efficient and effective conduct of the Regulatory Roundtable, including but not limited to, the following: timekeeping and ensuring each participant at the Regulatory Roundtable has an equal and fair amount of time to voice their concerns and opinions on regulatory matters; focusing the discussion on the theme; and maintaining decorum during the event.

Regulators (10)

The regulator sits in representation of their respective institution and can share valuable clarifications with regards to regulations currently in place and planned to come into effect in the near future.

Transcribers (10)

The discussion during the Roundtable will be minuted and the content will be anonymised.


A digital certificate of participation shall be conferred to moderators and transcribers for their participation and support during the Mauritius Africa FinTech Hub 2023 Regulatory Roundtable.

A post-event report is produced from the discussions, the content of which will be anonymised, to outline key findings, learnings and best proposals put forward. This will be circulated to participants and rendered available through our platform. This is an ideal opportunity for you to make your voice heard!
