The first deputy governor of the bank of Ghana has remained committed to starting up a central-bank digital currency. Dr. Maxwell Opoku-Afari made the comment during a stakeholder workshop meeting online in regards to payment services and systems.
A financial tech and innovation office was established this spring by the central bank in order to further development in the local industry. Over recent years, it has been able to adapt its organisational structure in order to respond to the big changes going on in the payments world. On top of this, these approaches are encouraging electronic cash transactions but the deputy governor has made it clear that the bank has specific plans to pilot a central digital currency and remains on solid ground in regards to the topic.
