Kalypton was delighted to make a contribution to a presentation made by Mr. Stewart White, CEO of Akhet Consulting to an ITU Regional Workshop in Baku. The presentation was entitled “Mobile Payments: The Issues and Prospects for the Development” with an emphasis on developments in Africa and Middle East and recommendations.
At the policy level, many regulators and Central Banks are grappling with the issue of how to regulate mobile payment to address ongoing obligations and concerns, but also to encourage the social and economic developments that they can enable.
Stewart’s presentation drew on experience in several countries to identify existing best practices and highlighted the importance of technology selection in ensuring that regulatory and developmental goals are met in full.
The presentation led to lively discussions and was very well received
