More information on the investment

The company will continue to provide its multi-currency digital payment platform in order to enable customers to have a safer and faster experience with foreign currencies and digital payments. YouTrip will deepen its investment in order to bolster its capabilities in artificial intelligence (AI), as well as other emerging technologies.
