  • COLLABORATIVE REGULATION KEY IN BOOSTING CROSS-BORDER PAYMENTS

      FSMP Workshop August 2017

    In the recent years, there has been a strong momentum towards regional economic and financial integration as seen by the developments in the Regional Economic Communities (RECs) on the African continent. This has been followed by the development and implementation of links and interconnections in payments and market infrastructures. Sound and efficient payment systems significantly contribute to the efficiency of financial systems and enhance financial stability. Consequently, well-developed regional payment systems promote cross-border trade and economic and monetary integration by reducing transaction periods and cost; and supporting safety in transaction processing.

    Against this backdrop, MEFMI’s Financial Sector Management Programme (FSMP) conducted an East African Community (EAC) sub-regional workshop on cross-border payment systems from the 31 July – 4 August 2017 in Kigali, Rwanda. The workshop, the first of its kind, targeted staff from the EAC Central Banks and Ministries of Finance, involved in the operation, oversight, supervision and legal advisory of cross- border payment systems in the four MEFMI member states – Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda.
