May 3, 2021

Tunis, May 2 (TAP) - 'Digital Payments in the Middle East and North Africa: Job Creation, Inclusion and Public Service Delivery', is the theme of a webinar, to be organized by the World Bank, on May 6.

The objective of this webinar, organised in partnership with the Arab Monetary Fund, is to increase awareness of how digital payments can support job creation, enhanced service delivery, and inclusion of youth and women.

It aims to engage with high-level decision makers, policymakers, regulators, private sector business leaders, and influencers, to share a vision and strategies to successfully foster digital transformation in the region.

The international institution points out that “the COVID-19 pandemic has offered a dramatic test case for the effectiveness of digital solutions across the Middle East and North Africa region, from the Ocean to the Gulf.

Together with universal and affordable broadband, the widespread availability of cashless payments is a key enabler for digital transformation and a driver for economic recovery.

The event will be livestreamed and will offer simultaneous interpretation in Arabic, English, and French.

It will include a panel discussion and testimonials from civil society organizations and the private sector, a look ahead to the next step in Middle East and North Africa’s digital transformation, and a call to action to support digital payments across the region.

Governor of the Central Bank of Tunisia, Marouane El Abassi will be among speakers at this webinar.
