MYPINPAD is excited to announce its participation in the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Payment Systems, launched by membership organisation Vendorcom. The group will address key developments in payments systems that affect consumers and merchant businesses. It will also look at the role of payment systems in ensuring the stability of the UK economy and society.
The group, which holds its inaugural meeting at 1pm today, within the House of Commons, will be chaired by Suella Fernandes, MP. Sian Williams from Toynbee Hall and Paul Rodgers of Vendorcom will be leading the discussion as speakers.
MYPINPAD is pleased to be involved in such a worthy group at a time of great uncertainty for the UK payments industry, and is looking forward to driving action on key issues further alongside other significant industry players.
David Poole, Business Development Director at MYPINPAD, will be representing the business at the group meeting this week, bringing over 25 years of experience in the payments industry to the discussion.
Topics that will be addressed by the group include financial inclusion, small business services, regulation, consumer needs, innovation, security, identity and fraud.
With many challenges for the payments sector ahead, it is of great importance that different players, with diverse areas of specialism, have a forum to work alongside each other to devise the most relevant approaches and practices. This APPG group is the first of its kind in the UK to present the perfect opportunity to do so.
MYPINPAD believes strongly in working alongside other businesses and technologies to improve the future of consumer information security across sectors. The payments industry is a huge part of the burgeoning global Fintech industry and the business looks forward to aiding the progress of this group.
