CBSI-AFI Public-Private Dialogue (PPD) Training

Accelerating Digital Payments in the Pacific

What are the objectives of the AFI PPD regulatory training?

The Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) in collaboration with VISA is organizing a Training on Accelerating Digital Payments in the Pacific on 4th June 2019 in Honiara, Solomon Islands. Technical training led by PPD partners help generate discussion on how the public and private sector can work together to develop a more robust ecosystem for digital financial services. They act as a platform for attendees to develop policies and initiatives based on best practices to increase the adoption of digital payments.

The objective of this training is to generate discussion and find solutions that will build synergies and promote the harmonization of policies. The training will focus on:

  • The challenges and opportunities of the digital payments landscape in South Pacific
  • Identifying areas of collaboration to find solutions that build synergy between public and private sector leading to cost reduction
  • Sectors, such as tourism and domestic payments, and Visa’s approach to expanding access for the players in the sector

Who should attend?

The training is open to those AFI members who are attending the 5th Annual Roundtable of the Leaders of the Pacific Islands Regional Initiative (PIRI).

How to register?

Invitation for nominations has been emailed to AFI focal points of all AFI member institutions along with the invitation to attend the Regional Initiative.
