On 26 March 2024, the Electronic Payment Service Providers Association (EFISZ) and the Embassy of Hungary in Brussels held a joint international event at the Liszt Institute Brussels with the title “Hungary in the Forefront of the Development of the Instant Payment World”.  

The professional event held abroad intended to bring into focus, in particular, the ecosystem of electronic payment services, cross-border cooperation, regional partnerships and good practices – with a view to EFISZ’s intention to treat services with a value chain-based approach, maintain the competitiveness of the EU, and last, but not least, create partnerships.  

In this introductory event, they shared experiences learnt from the Instant Payment System, which has operated in Hungary successfully since 2020, and also outlined further development paths that could be used by other Member States as a good practice. In addition to the above, EFISZ and its members involved could get an insight into the latest services, as well as current regulations concerning the digital finance segment, and participants could engage in professional discussions at the workshop.
