#AccessQatar: QFCWebcast Series | Central Bank Digital Currency: Key Developments and Relevance in the Post COVID-19 Monetary Environment
Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) cordially invites you to attend its upcoming webinar, entitled: ‘Central Bank Digital Currency: Key developments and relevance in post COVID-19 monetary environment’, organised in collaboration with PwC.
 
The Chinese central bank started trials with digital currency in April. Bank of Japan also announced it would step up research into the topic. The European Central Bank launched a public consultation earlier October on the possible issuance of a “digital euro”. With the accelerated digitisation of commerce, trade, government, health care and financial services in the backdrop of the COVID-19 outbreak, the topic will no doubt become more relevant moving forward.
