FT Africa Payments Innovation Summit celebrates role of mobile technologies in African economic development


There will soon be more than one billion users of mobile phones in Africa, part of a potentially transformative change taking place across the continent. For users from all social groups, mobile phones promise an end to social and economic exclusion and a chance for economic empowerment. For both suppliers of financial service and mobile network operators, these developments offer a chance to attract a new generation of consumers through deepening their engagement in the fastexpanding world of mobile payments.

On 29 March 2017 the Financial Times Africa Payments Innovation Summit will bring together 250 business leaders from various mobile and financial interest groups under one roof. The summit will explore challenges and opportunities inherent in these developments: from providing greater financial access to un-banked people across the continent, to providing new services and opportunities for an emerging middle class. The FT Africa Payments Innovation Summit will be attended by senior level decision makers from government ministries, regulators, policy makers and banks.
