Twitter Chat on Dec. 4 with ICTworks and USAID: #ICTchat

  1. Posted by Jana Melpolder on December 1, 2014 in the categories: Events


Safety and transparency are very important issues when it comes to sending and receiving digital payments within developing countries. Establishing trust in digital payments system and sufficient levels of consumer protection and transparency of service terms are key to broader adoption of digital payments. What’s being done to help reduce this concern?

To bring this issue to the forefront, the ICTworks community is joining with the Global Broadband and Innovations Alliance (GBI), a partnership between USAID and NetHope, and the Better Than Cash Alliance to host a Twitter Chat as we near International Anti-Corruption Day on December 9th, 2014.

Join us on December 4th at 12 noon Eastern time using the #ICTchat hashtag to debate the merits and issues of digital payments with four thought leaders:

We’ll start off with a quick round of introductions and then dive into three key questions on the safety and transparency of digital payments:

  1. How are digital payments safer for those making and receiving payments in developing countries?
  2. What digital payments consumer protection standards and best practices are emerging for transparency in fees and terms of service?
  3. GSMA recently released a code of conduct for mobile money operators. What does this do and what does it mean for transparency?

As with all our Twitter Chats, it will be a fast-paced, global conversation that you’ll not want to miss. So mark your calendar now:

Twitter Chat: Digital Payments in Developing Countries
