Share with your family and friends

The first deputy governor of the bank of Ghana has remained dedicated to initiating a central-bank digital currency. Dr Maxwell Opoku-Afari made the comment during a stakeholder workshop meeting virtually in regards to payment services and systems.

A financial tech and innovation office was set up this spring by the central bank in order to further development in the local industry. Over recent years, it has been able to adapt its organisational structure in order to respond to the big changes going on in the payments world. On top of this, these approaches are encouraging electronic cash transactions but the deputy governor has made it obvious that the bank has specific plans to pilot a central digital currency and remains on solid ground in regards to the topic.

The report from GhanaWeb was published earlier this week on the 8th of June and highlights that the bank of Ghana established a payment system department in 2016. From that time, they have encouraged a wide range of digital interbank payments in the nation.
