Retail payments are at the forefront of the digital transformation of financial services. Changing payment-processing interfaces, the introduction of crypto-assets and more recently, new payment instruments, are all shifting the traditionally cash-dominated retail payment landscape.
In September, the European Commission published a Communication on a Retail Payments Strategy for the EU in response. In the strategy, the Commission puts forward a vision for European retail payments: i) a broad and diverse range of high-quality payment solutions for citizens and businesses; ii) availability of competitive home-grown, pan-European payment solutions; and, iii) cross-border payments with third countries. During this CEPS-ECRI webinar, key stakeholders involved in the payments sector will discuss the strategy.
To what extent is the strategy setting the right priorities and objectives for a future-proof EU retail payments market? And are the key actions to reach the objectives fit for purpose?
