money movement, and JD Digits, a leading digital technology company in
China with 400 million individual customers, today entered into a
strategic agreement to join forces to advance digital cross-border money
movement and payments for global consumers and businesses in China.

Western Union and JD Digits are exploring new ways to combine the
convenience of online and mobile financial technology (fintech) services
to allow fast and convenient cross-border remittances and payments. In
the first phase, both companies will focus on moving remittances from
