Introducing the Africa-Global Payment Summit 2019

 

Introducing the Africa – Global Payment Summit – SADC Chapter

 

We are excited to announce the inaugural Africa – Global Payment Summit on 27-28th August 2019. This premier international event is scheduled to be hosted at the Hilton Sandton in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Africa GPS will bring together the 16 SADC – Central Bank members and key stakeholders instrumental in the quest for an enhanced payments and banking ecosystem and will provide a focus and takeaways on how this can be realised.

We will look at the latest national developments, wallets as well as the larger, cross-border regional platforms that are transforming the African payments landscape. Also in focus will be the cashless initiatives across the region, enabling the unbanked and geographically remote to transact seamlessly.

Beyond the African landscape, our international reach will endeavour to bring the global best practices from Europe, America, and Asia. How has PSD2 and Open Banking taken off in Europe and what can Africa learn from it? Will central bank initiatives across South East Asia to promote the cashless society see real traction? What lessons can SADC learn from other pan-regional alignments?  We share these and more in Africa-GPS so delegates can expect a real international learning opportunity!

We welcome your input and suggestions to our program!  Please email David Roberts Global Payments Director.
