SFF: GREEN SHOOTS SERIES

Synopsis

The COVID-19 pandemic has further underscored the importance of national digital infrastructures, with an emergence of new needs and public services that hinge on digital services. Public foundational digital infrastructures will be critical for inclusive economic and social development – enabling interoperable solutions and seamless services, to reach more people and businesses at lower cost and greater convenience. Policymakers can play a vital role in supporting the provisioning of such foundational digital infrastructures to all members of the society as a public good.

The SFF Green Shoots Series will be kicking off our first episode in 2021 with a deep-dive into the state of foundational national digital infrastructure.

Opening Remarks by Ravi Menon, MAS Managing Director

An interactive dialogue examining three key areas with four central bankers representing emerging Asia (Brunei and Cambodia) and Africa (Ghana and Kenya) and moderated by Sopnendu Mohanty, MAS.

1. The state of digital infrastructure
2. The role of market players (Tech, FinTechs and FIs) in leveraging or expanding these infrastructures
3. Driving towards the end state: interoperable and connected infrastructure across jurisdictions

The session will close with the crucial policy enablers for a globally interconnected foundational infrastructure, with Ari Sarker, Mastercard.
