Emphasizing the role of technology in development, Mr. Asante and Dr. Bawumia discussed the potential of Mobile Money and its many benefits.

Mr. Asante enumerated ways in which government and citizens could benefit from the service, stating that Mobile Money could be used to process payments for many government services including the payment of vehicle inspection fees, passports and others.

He explained that during the period in which government used MTN Mobile Money for LEAP payments, transparency was enhanced and leakage minimized.

He stated that mainstreaming Mobile Money in government initiatives could minimize corruption.

On network improvements, the CEO of MTN took the opportunity to brief the Vice President on expansion projects being undertaken by MTN to expand and optimize the network and improve experience for subscribers in Ghana.

The Vice President expressed the Government’s recognition of the benefits of electronic money services and gave the assurance that Government would ensure Ghanaians experienced the transformational benefits of technology.

He stated that, “the Mobile money space is a major area where we can see a lot of value. It is very clear that the Telco’s have figured this out.”
