At a reception in Hanoi on March 25 for Alfred Kelly, CEO of Visa – the global payment technology company that looks to enable consumers, businesses, banks, and governments in using digital currency, the government leader assured the Vietnamese Government’s great support for the mutually beneficial cooperation between Visa and its Vietnamese partners for mutual benefit, he affirmed, hoping that the company continues helping to ensure security and safety for e-payments in the country.
He expressed his hope to receive Visa’s support for the building of the digital economy, e-government services, and smart cities in Vietnam and asked the company to work with Vietnam’s relevant agencies to reach a consensus on an e-payment system this year.
Kelly, for his part, promised to cooperate with the Vietnamese Government, the SBV, and the National Payment Corporation of Vietnam (NAPAS) to come up with effective measures to serve Vietnamese people.
He suggested both sides should work together toward strengthening security in e-transactions as Visa has experience in this area.
Visa will organise a workshop on measures to ensure security in financial transactions in Vietnam within this week, he said, adding that his company would stand side-by-side with Vietnam in its economic growth process, and support the country in fulfilling socio-economic development tasks until 2045.VOV
