About Event

Payment Innovation Summit - West Africa

Digital technologies are unlocking new pathways for rapid economic growth, innovation, employment, and access to all forms of services in Africa.

The internet penetration is a major facet that supports all verticals to enhance access of services, however Africa’s internet coverage still lags behind other regions, which creates a digital divide with the availability of services, and issues for the remote and poorer areas in many countries. This is the case with the financial services sector as well.

The question arises, how are governments, the financial services sector, and the telecommunication authorities working to narrow these digital divides, and enhance access of financial services to customers especially in the remote areas of Africa, which includes the poorest of the poor?

BII World brings to you the Payment Innovation Summit – West Africa, Presented by Network International, an event which is part of the flagship Africa Bank 4.0 Summit. This high-profile summit brings together the policy makers, and the higher authorities from West Africa’s Digital Payments, Fintech and Banking sector to pave the way forward into progressing West Africa’s quest to enhance access to finance by adopting superior methods in digital payment transformation.

The event hosts high-profile officials from the relevant government bodies, and the c-suite from banks, microfinance institutions, fintechs and regulators on the speaker roster. Within the audience the event hosts senior and executive management officials from the financial services sector to determine West Africa’s progressive future in payments, digital banking & beyond.
