In June this year, Facebook formally announced its plans to launch a digital currency token, Libra. It has since been hailed in the news by supporters as the next generation of payments that can open up financial services to underserved populations and by critics as an assault on the global currency system that must be stopped. Given the reach of Facebook and the broad spectrum of firms which are supporting the project (such as Mastercard, PayPal, Uber, Vodaphone, etc.) it is worth taking the initiative seriously.

AmCham's Financial Services Committee will gather a panel of practitioners and academics who intimately know the digital asset, innovative ventures, and payment platforms ecosystems to help business leaders understand how Libra's potential business implications for the finance sector and corporates, how this currency may need to be managed and whether they should start preparing to add it to their own payments systems.

Join us for a lively discussion followed by a networking cocktail.

Light refreshment included
