Achieving the targets set in the latest phase of the G20 cross-border payments programme will require collaboration and engagement between the public and private sector. In this year’s Future of payments report, we examined the diverse approaches being adopted by industry players and uncovered the geopolitical factors driving their choices.
To celebrate the launch of the 2023 report, we convened an expert panel to discuss the priorities, opportunities and challenges faced by central banks and the global payments industry as they work to achieve a more efficient cross-border payments ecosystem.
The panel explored key questions around regional payments solutions and the potential for fragmentation, the role of cryptocurrencies and stablecoins in cross-border payments, the economic importance of remittance innovation and the implications of central bank digital currencies and distributed ledger technology for stakeholders looking to deploy next-generation options.
This edition of the report follows the successful publication of Future of payments 2022, which featured partners including AWS, Binance, Bitt, Flutterwave, Payoneer, RTGS.Globlal, Swift and Visa.
