Dear Chairman Mr. Bobby Rozario, Executive Committee members, Award Committee members, fellow members of HKCCMA and honourable guests:

It is a great honour for me to receive this Credit Management Excellence Award, in recognition of my continuous effort in utilizing fintech technology in debt collection work, from a well-established and managed professional organization like HKCCMA. But I must say I should only be the recipient on behalf of our technology development team in BIBO Limited. Ever since we started this debt collection company about 21 years ago, we have put technology in the first place. Over the years, we keep on applying automation, artificial intelligence, data analytics, fuzzy logic, computer-telephony, natural language processing technologies to our industry. Lately, we have started to apply regulatory technology to cope with the ever-demanding compliance requirements of our clients.

As we all know, debt collection is a people business, technology only helps improve business efficiency and can never replace humans. I sincerely encourage our fellow members to consider using these technologies if they are still hesitant about their values.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the HKCCMA for giving advice and guidance in developing our business, through its published articles, activities and webinars.

Last, but not least, I must personally thank Chairman Mr. Bobby Rozario for his continual support and kind referrals to various business opportunities over the years.

Thank you all of you! Have a nice evening and stay safe!
