Webinar: Enhancing Cross-boarder Payments - the Road Ahead
Attend the Sveriges Riksbank's and CPMI's regional webinar for the Nordic-Baltic region on enhancing cross-boarder payments on Monday, 25 January 2021 10.00-12.00 (CET).
Improved cross-border payments will support financial inclusion, international trade, and global cooperation. The Covid-19 pandemic has reaffirmed the need for lower-cost, faster, more accessible and more transparent cross-border payments. The G20 has endorsed a roadmap to enhance cross-boarder payments. The CPMI has contributed to the identification of frictions underlying cross-border payment arrangements (FSB Stage 1 report) and the final roadmap (FSB Stage 3 roadmap). The roadmap is based on the “building blocks" needed to improve current payment systems, as identified in the CPMI
Stage 2 report. Sveriges Riksbank has been involved throughout this three-stage process coordinated by the Financial Stability Board (FSB).
The objective of this webinar for the Nordic-Baltic region is to inform relevant stakeholders
from the public and private sectors about this work and to support the implementation of the roadmap. This webinar will (i) outline the building blocks and the roadmap and (ii) seek participants’ input on selected building blocks.
