At the heart of the two-day event are panels, workshops, sharing and training meetings, expositions, etc. The main topic which will be debated at the occasion is “digital banking”, “one of the most significant levers of e-payment”. In details, actors present will focus on the major changes recorded by banks that rely on digital technology to provide services with added value, as well as on the impact of the changes on e-payment.
The various panels of the forum will be hosted by actors from various African nations, going from Morocco to sub-Saharan Africa and Europe even. Most of those are senior banks’ officials and currency experts. “The main objective of the forum is to showcase innovations, develop synergies, partnerships between currency actors, banks, enterprises, administrations and telephony operators […],” said Omar Magoul, Interworld’s Managing Director.
