TORONTO, June 12, 2017 /CNW/ - First Global Data ("First Global" or the "Company") is pleased to advise that senior Executives and advisors of the Company have returned to China to follow through on various initiatives already in motion.

The Company has a whirlwind schedule of meetings in 4 cities in a 7 day period. We are currently under NDA with some of the largest enterprises in the world and are following through with direct face to face meetings to advance various matters.

Further, the Company is in the final stages for the launch of the world's first true social messaging cross border remittance solution whereby North American Chinese WeChat users will remit money directly to other WeChat users in mainland China through a unique and proprietary seamless series of integrations and interconnections within the WeChat environment.

China remains the dominant player in the FINTECH universe and is home to some of the world's most sophisticated organizations. As such there are numerous opportunities with First Global's technology for Chinese users related to payments and remittances in the spheres of Travel and Tourism, m-Commerce and other cross border money transactions.

"Our technology touches on so many verticals and when interactions intersect with scale, robust revenues is a natural consequence. The impact that First Global is making in the FINTECH sector has been acknowledged and embraced by our Chinese partners and the level of opportunity and interest in First Global in China is unrivalled. We continue to pursue all opportunities to maximize our penetration in China and in the overseas Chinese markets", said Andre Itwaru, Chairman and CEO of First Global.
