It is important to understand its usefulness in light of the latest developments in capital markets and policies in each country. In the future, we will continue discussions with regulators and stock exchanges in each country on the international laws and regulations on cryptographic assets and security tokens, and will make efforts to strengthen the market.
The meeting between Naokazu Takemoto, IT Policy Minister and CEZA CEO, Secretary of State Raoul Lambino, took place on January 4, 2020. The future of financial business in the Philippines and Asia was discussed.

The CEZA website and media reports also mention the security token exchange “ALLEX”, which is said to play an important role in promoting security tokens in the Philippines.
ALLEX still will play an influential role in helping to train Philippine blockchain developers in how to create security tokens. This Japan-Philippine technology and knowledge transfer is one of the economic benefits of having foreign back office support within CEZA.
