Role of regulators to top payments meet

The role of regulators will feature prominently at this year’s Financial Times (FT) Africa Payments Innovation Summit set for Nairobi in March.

Central Bank Governor Patrick Njoroge (pictured) is among the key speakers.

Others will include Vera Songwe, the executive secretary for United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, and Ashish Thakkar, the CEO of Uganda’s Mara Group. 

FT said the role of regulators in creating an enabling environment for new solutions continued to come under the spotlight.
