The two-day workshop aims to bring together key stakeholders from India and various African countries, including representatives from the RBI, the National Payments Council of India, African Regional and National Central Banks, Economic Communities, Monetary Institutes, Banking Institutions and Payment Systems, Mobile Money Service Providers, Commercial Banks, and Training Institutions.
The workshop will be financed by the Indian Trust Fund that was established in line with the Technical Cooperation Agreement between Government of India and the African Development Bank Group on 28 March 2010. The fund supports infrastructure, private sector, ICT, trade, science and technology development in African countries through technical assistance, capacity building, organization of seminars, workshops, conference for networking, and knowledge sharing on India’s economic development experiences.
