Kalypton collaborates with Akhet Consulting on Presentation to ITU in Baku

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
