One of the important directions of “the Master Plan of the Development of the Guangdong-Macau Intensive Cooperation Zone in Hengqin” is to develop modern financial services industry, which can also help Macau to achieve economic diversification. In addition, the banking, finance and wealth management industry has been digitalizing rapidly in recent years.   The trend implies higher demand and requirements for financial talents. The joint CFMP and CB training programmes reflect FBA-BRTC’s active cooperation and participation in the training and development process of local talents in the modern financial services industry, so as to assist and cope with the implementation of the “Master Plan”.
