The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Interbank Payment and Settlement Systems Limited, Archie Hesse has called on all banks across the country to the seriously the e-zwich platform. This he says will enhance financial inclusion in the country.
Speaking at a business forum held by Citi FM in collaboration with GhIPSS as part of its 10th anniversary celebration, the CEO of GhIPSS urged bankers in the country to take the e-zwich platform seriously since it’s an effective means of driving full convenience for customers.
“I will urge all the bankers here to take the e-zwich platform very seriously. It’s one way of driving full convenience for your customers. The second advantage of the e-zwich platform is the fact that it works offline. If you travel anywhere and there are telecommunication challenges, you can still be able to have access to your funds" He stated.
Mr. Hesse also revealed that the e-zwich card is the only card in the world that can be used in any bank for monetary transactions.
He noted that this characteristic feature of the e-zwich card is one of the key reasons the country chose it to drive financial inclusion.
GhIPSS sponsored this discussion on Financial Inclusion as part of its 10th Anniversary Celebration.
