Central banks around the world are grappling with the question of whether a payments system owned and operated nationally is preferable to using large-scale international payments systems. OMFIF is producing a report based on in-depth interviews with a variety of central banks to assess the relative strengths of national and international payments systems, based on a number of criteria, including functionality, technical resilience, protection from fraud and cyberattack, ease of cross-border payments and cost-effectiveness.
The findings of the report will be presented at a launch, followed by a discussion with expert panellists and a short Q&A.
Some early analysis of the themes can be seen here.
