The promise of fast cross-border payments is on the horizon. Fast (or Instant) Payment Systems are rapidly taking hold in countries around the world. Consumers and businesses want the benefits that these systems bring domestically to address challenges in cross-border payments and make them faster, cheaper, and more efficient. The industry has and continues to respond with innovations and policymakers are taking on initiatives to drive change. This workshop reviews the fundamentals of cross-border payments and correspondent banking, the current state of domestic fast payment systems, and notable innovations to make fast payments work cross-border. We will also feature industry and initiatives to link these domestic systems together to create new multi-country networks that hold promise for fast cross border payments.
