Lunch Time Meeting

Is innovation increasing competition in retail payments?


The retail payments sector is growing and changing due to ecommerce and new payment offerings such as in-app payments and other mobile offerings. During this CEPS-ECRI lunchtime meeting the impact of those innovations on the retail payment sector will be discussed. Senior practitioners, high-level officials and corporate representatives will focus on issues like whether digitalisation and new legislations are increasing the competition and support for innovation in the retail payments markets? Is there a need for changes in the existing legislation?

Registration and light lunch from 12:30 – Meeting from 13.15 to 14.30
