3. SOUNDBITE (English) Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director, IMF
“This is a story about human drive and ingenuity, a story about the revolution in payments that erases physical distance, that generates data which is the new gold and hence often the new collateral. It is about payments that are cheap and widely accessible, that are seamlessly integrated in our digital lives,”

“As the way we make payments changes, our world changes. We can provide access to financial services for 1.7 billion adults who are still unbanked and help many more vulnerable people who are currently paying high fees. Also, the banking and financial industry is being reshaped by data automation and real time analytics. And finally, payment innovations can change the international monetary system, the ways in which we transact across borders, access foreign assets, exchange currencies and price goods,”

“Digital payments are not just for the tech savvy; they have huge implications for the whole world. So, we must tread courageously and carefully. We must ensure that payments evolve to meet user needs while remaining safe and resilient. And that's at the micro level. At the macro level, we need to foster a financial sector and international monetary system that are efficient and trusted, equitable and inclusive and still dynamic,”
