“Looking back at the past two years, it should be noted that the foundation of the European Digital Finance Association (EDFA) was an important milestone in the professional development of the EFISZ association. We are proud that the EDFA non-profit organisation took part in the creation of the European Digital Finance Strategy as an official consultant partner of the European Union. The most important lesson learned in the current situation is that domestic digitalisation has developed very rapidly due to the coronavirus pandemic. New ideas, cooperation and solutions were created. At EFISZ, we are shaping the future of financial technology together. We are striving to continue this expert work in 2022.”- said DÁVIDHÁZY Gábor, the Secretary-General of the Electronic Payment Service Providers’ Association.
