Mobile Money Transfer APAC – Manila, December 8-9, 2009
The mobile phone offers a convenient, quick, secure, low cost channel to initiate and receive money transfers. With cross border remittances, domestic transfers, airtime top-up, utility bill and school fee payment, salary disbursements and microcredit loan repayments, the potential value of this new opportunity is phenomenal.
The Asia Pacific region will see the biggest take up of mobile payments, reaching 3.8 percent of all mobile users by 2012. The World Bank estimates that $118.4bn of remittances will flow into East Asia and the Pacific in 2008. The Philippines is an ideal host for MMT APAC: Operators such as Smart Communications and Globe Telecom are MMT pioneers, running some of the most acclaimed and mature mobile money programmes in the world. See them both in action and learn about all the latest MMT business models and technologies.
