Experts on payment systems from the continent have met in Accra to deliberate on the relevance of the biometric smart card system as Ghana played host to its first conference on the payment platform.
The conference which was jointly organised by EDAPT and Ghana Interbank Payment and Settlement Systems (GhIPSS) was christened EDAPT User Group 2016, and it delved into the biometric payment technology and its benefits.
As Ghana and other Africa countries work towards a cash-lite economy, discussions at this conference touched on strategies going forward, especially regarding biometric technology.
Some of the topics discussed include Biometric and EMV Integration, Innovations, Data and Payments as well as the Future of Plastics in the Banking Industry.
