About Webinar

Digitization is listed among bedrock pillars of Saudi Vision 2030, which also extends to the Kingdom’s financial systems. The Crown Prince and the Kingdom are heavily investing in fintech infrastructure to achieve the target of >70% non-cash transactions.

More importantly, the need to drive further “low touch” such as contactless payments infrastructure has been increasingly recognized by many governments across the world during the COVID-19 crisis both for health and economic reasons.

This webinar will explore why Saudi Arabia is going cashless, including the key players in the market, initiatives from the government and private sector, barriers to a cashless society, and future opportunities.
