The Australian Payments Council (APC) – the strategic coordination body for the Australian payments industry – is inviting businesses, consumers, government, and non-government organisations to help shape its strategic agenda for the next three years.
In 2015, the APC consulted widely to develop the Australian Payments Plan, which served to guide industry over the last three years in areas such as digital identity, open data and the changing payments mix. The APC's consultation paper released on 22 January 2019 – Payments in a Global, Digital World – forms part of the Plan’s first triennial review.
In a video message, Robert Milliner, Chairman of the APC, explains that the shift to a more digital and global economy is changing the way we make payments. The Consultation Paper highlights the trends, and outlines some of the challenges that have emerged or intensified over the last three years.
The APC is inviting all interested parties to get involved in its consultation and give their views on what’s needed to support the digital economy of the future.
Written submissions are due by 22 February 2019. A workshop will be held in Sydney on 25 February 2019.
