The Bank of England’s approach to digital currencies and cross-border payments
The pandemic has accelerated the transformation of payments, with many countries looking into central bank digital currencies, upgrading real-time gross settlement systems or discussing next steps for cross-border payments. Sir Jon Cunliffe, deputy governor of the Bank of England, discusses how the Bank is engaging with British and international payments landscapes. He explores the outlook for CBDCs and expands on the innovation timeframe as well as what is needed to improve national and cross-border payments and settlements.
This meeting will be on-the-record and open to a wider audience.
