CEPS - Centre for European Policy Studies, 1 Place du Congrès/Congresplein, 1000 Brussels

The retail payments sector is growing and changing due to ecommerce and new payment offerings such as in-app payments and other mobile offerings. During this CEPS-ECRI lunchtime meeting the impact of those innovations on the retail payment sector will be discussed. Senior practitioners, high-level officials and corporate representatives will focus on issues like whether digitalisation and new legislations are increasing the competition and support for innovation in the retail payments markets? Is there a need for changes in the existing legislation?
