Digital transformation and synergy
March 24, 2021
Tashkent, Hyatt Regency Tashkent
MAKE A PRESENTATION

WHAT FORUM?

The PLUS-Forum is supported by the Central Bank of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Ministry of Economy of Uzbekistan, the National Association of Financial Market Participants and the Association of Banks of Uzbekistan. In recent years, the rapid development of digital technology has been one of the key catalysts for almost any business!

Banking, the payment industry and retail are no exception. In Uzbekistan, however, it so happens that banks and retailers develop their projects independently of each other. In this regard, our Forum is a platform that would help develop a productive dialogue between banks and retail.

Together with you, through the dialogue, we facilitate the initiatives aimed at higher quality of banking services provided to the individuals and businesses, and contribute to broadening the range of modern retail banking services, creating conditions for better availability of financial resources, including microfinance services and public procurement, tobusiness entities.
