Message from the Organizers

Dear Delegate,

For nearly three decades, Currency Research (CR) has focused its initiatives on bringing together central banks and relevant stakeholders to address the most critical concerns, challenges, and opportunities facing the currency function of the treasury, policy, and issuance departments.

As part of this core mission and with a sight to broaden its scope beyond fiat currency, in June 2017 CR successfully launched the annual Central Bank Payments Conference (CBPC) in Amsterdam. Our primary objective is to support the central bank community in addressing new and emerging challenges they face in the quickly evolving payments landscape. 

We are honored to confirm that the response to the inaugural event was overwhelming. We welcomed over 120 participants, including representation from forty different central banks that comprised half of the delegation. In addition to central bankers, the conference attracted private payment systems providers and other key market participants eager to network and to understand the central bank’s main concerns in the field of payment systems. 

We strongly encourage you to register soon to ensure your most welcome participation, as space is limited. The next conference takes place on 25-27 June 2018, in the beautiful tropical island city-state of Singapore. 

Please note that a distinctive feature of this conference is its focus on major policy concerns of the moment; it does not deal with payment system basics nor target newcomers to the field. Attendance at the conference is therefore recommended for managers and senior experts with some experience in payment systems and market infrastructure issues. 

We invite you to explore the program and other conference particulars – and please do contact us with your questions or comments.

We look forward to welcoming you to Singapore in June 2018!
