INNOVATION IN PAYMENTS IN AFRICA

The digital payment space has transformed everyday lives across the continent, from the introduction of mobile phones to the adoption of digital payment systems by merchants to streamline their finance systems. How does Africa continue to develop its digital economy through innovation? What existing and new models have provided game-changing tools in various industries? How do digital processes reduce the cost of wiring for remittances reaching individuals? How do various payment systems boost the transparency and efficiency of investments in Africa? What policies are essential for a secure finance system online? This panel takes a deep dive into examples such as Facebook with Vera, BitPesa, Flutterwave, PayPal, and Mastercard to examine how these technological solutions will further advance economic growth.
