Global Government Fintech is a sister publication to Global Government Forum.

Launched on 1 September 2020, we are passionate about innovation in the public sector and the possibilities enabled by the emerging arena of financial technology (fintech). 

Global Government Fintech‘s portfolio includes a news-driven digital publication globalgovernmentfintech.com providing editorially independent news, analysis and interviews across topic sections including artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, data, digital currencies and payments.

We also hosts webinars and in-person events focused on public sector fintech innovation. We organised the inaugural Global Government Fintech Lab in Estonia on 1 June 2022 and the second Lab event in Ireland on 18 May 2023. The next event will return to Ireland on 25 April 2024.

Our activity is supported and enhanced by social-media activity on LinkedIn, X/Twitter and (most recently) Instagram.

You can subscribe to our free editorial email newsletter, which is circulated at least once a week.

We are part of Pendragon International Media Ltd, a publishing, events and research business.



“Global Government Fintech is a beacon of intelligent, thoughtful, objective reporting in a crucial area that is changing and developing so rapidly that reliable commentary is particularly important. It is my first port of call for an overview of the latest developments in fintech and implementation by governments.”

Nick Down, Head of Payments, HM Revenue & Customs, UK

“Global Government Fintech is a remarkable independent editorial platform and facilitator for any government agency! At the Lab event in May 2023 there were very innovative ideas, exceptional speakers, insightful sessions and valuable networking opportunities. It is the platform that lets public sector professionals to stay ahead of the curve, to be among the first to learn about the latest initiatives and innovations in the field of fintech.”

Nazim Gasimzade, Director, State Treasury Agency, Azerbaijan speaker at Global Government Fintech Lab 2023

“The Global Government Fintech Lab 2023 was – like in 2022 – a very successful and valuable event. For us as a regulator, to meet colleagues from other countries and to learn more about approaches in fintech development and supervision, is very beneficial. It is always a fantastic opportunity to present our country, share our openness to the industry and to share our experience. I was happy to meet new people and learn how to develop and find the balance between innovations and regulation. The organisation of event was excellent and the content of each discussion very useful.”

Marine Krasovska, Head – Financial Technology Supervision Department, Latvia’s central bank (Latvijas Banka) – speaker at Global Government Fintech Lab 2022 & Global Government Fintech Lab 2023 (and also confirmed for Global Government Fintech Lab 2024)

Financial innovation is a global phenomenon requiring intense international cooperation – it cannot be nurtured, nor its risks controlled, within borders. Global Government Fintech’s Lab event offers a great platform for authorities all over the world to come together and have deep, thought-provoking discussions on a topic that is taking everyone by storm.”
