Attend the the second session of the Central Bank Digital Currencies: International and Domestic Challenges online conference on Jurisdictional and Regulatory Boundaries

The application of national regulation to international payments remains subject to significant uncertainties and complicate the use of money by non-resident entities. How much control does the central bank want to maintain and should maintain if any and how will data protection be observed? How should international settlement occur and finality be assured in cross-border payments?
