Mr. Majeed Hujair – Senior Director of the Visa School of Public Policy,

Invited Guests,

Workshop Participants,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Good morning.

I am delighted and honoured to welcome you to this ‘Digital Payments’ workshop, to be conducted by our fellow colleague from the Visa School of Public Policy.

Visa has been a long-standing and active participant in the Seychelles’ economy, providing services to our commercial banks, merchants and consumers. It is of utmost importance that we continue to build and maintain this collaboration, especially through Public-Private dialogues. It is crucial for regulators to work with the private sector to provide an enabling environment, and to enhance financial inclusion, through private sector expertise.
