Mastercard will help Ethiopia to achieve its objectives
Mastercard and the Ethiopian Ministry of Innovation and Technology (MINT) will partner for the implementation of strategic solutions to deliver a digitized economy in Ethiopia.
Under this MOU, Mastercard will use its global technology platforms, insights, and experience from working with governments worldwide in supporting Ethiopia.
At the same time, the Ethiopian Government seeks to optimize existing technology, digital assets, and services in driving its digital transformation agenda. It will directly support efforts towards financial inclusion. As a result, that would create safe and accessible digitized payment solutions for small businesses and implementing digital identity projects.
We’ve reported that Mastercard has announced the launch of the Small Business Digital Readiness Diagnostic in the US. That’s a free online tool to help entrepreneurs future-proof their businesses for a digital world.
