Business Council supports mobile and banking event

As part of its programme to mobilise East Africa’ s business community to take advantage of the region’ s new era of economic integration, the East African Business Council has announced that it will be actively supporting the fifth annual AITEC Banking & Mobile Money Conference, to be held in Nairobi on 2-3 March.
 
Announcing the Council’ s participation in the event, Agatha Nderitu, Executive Director of the Council, said the conference is an ideal opportunity to promote dialogue between the region’ s banks and their business customers regarding the best practices needed in the region for quick and efficient financial transactions to promote cross-border trade and investment across the region.

“ We have watched this conference grow in stature and impact over the years and feel it is an ideal platform to present the Council’ s vision for economic integration, promote dialogue among the participants on these issues, and create a positive impact in terms of the new ideas and broader vision that the delegates will take away with them to implement in their organisations.”
 
Sean Moroney, founder and chairman of AITEC Africa, welcomed the Council’ s support. “ We are privileged to have the support and active participation of the region’ s pinnacle private sector body. With the Council’ s input we will be able to maximise the regional impact of the event. We look forward to working with the Council over the coming three months to make sure the conference meets the information and educational needs of the region’ s business community.”
 
As part of its input, the Council will prepare a position paper for the conference, setting out the priorities it proposes for the financial services sector to serve the region’ s business needs effectively.
