The Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Keve) on Tuesday praised the central bank’s initiative to accelerate the banking sector’s digitisation efforts by setting out to create a digital solution encompassing banks’ client onboarding and reviewing processes.
“This new initiative aims to help the actors of the real economy, including businesses, the self-employed and households, by reducing the time needed to carry out their banking needs and significantly upgrading the speed and quality of their service,” Keve said, echoing the central bank’s thoughts on the initiative.
“The implementation of such a solution across the entire banking system is expected to provide a comparative advantage in Cyprus over other countries,” Keve concluded.
