Leading innovators and decision makers from international money transfer operators, financial services providers, financial technology providers, agent network operators, mobile financial services providers, regulators and stakeholders from the supply and demand side of the financial technology and remittance industry will attend the event.

Event Director at Mobile Money Africa, Emmanuel Okoegwale, said Africa had  made great strides in mobile technology adoption and penetration.

“However, despite the pervasive coverage of such mobile networks across Africa, technological innovation has yet to drive down costs in Africa’s remittance markets,” said Okoegwale.

The barriers to cost-reduction, challenges and opportunities in the African remittance market, the emergence of digital remittances such as mobile money, online transfers and lowering remittance cost for  Africans were some of the subject matter areas to be considered at theconference being held at the Oriental Hotel.

Speakers from leading money transfer operators and financial technology providers such as Transfast, xpressmoney, TransferTo, Xpressmoney, Tagattitude, Redcloud and HelloPaisa will keynote the event.

The expo addresses the emerging digital financial ecosystem in Africa covering regulations, technology, innovations from the supply and demand side value chain actors within the African continent.
