Aligning Real Time Payments
– Towards Seamless Interoperability
As central banks in the region continue with cashless initiatives, further collaborations on real time cross border funds transfer could become a reality. Regulators are also driving standardisation to encourage innovation, so the prospect of regional alignment is getting stronger. This could herald the advent of a fully interoperable, standardised payments system. Pan-regional mobile payment wallets will make way for a less fragmented payment ecosystem, furthering Financial Inclusion and making us less dependent on cash. At GPS 2019, we look at the latest national developments in e-payments as well as the larger, cross-border regional platforms that are transforming the Asian payments landscape.
- Regulatory Challenges in Emerging Markets (central bank panel)

- Social Commerce Platforms
