Central Bank Initiative Accelerates Cross-Border Payments

A groundbreaking initiative led by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and several central banks is set to revolutionise cross-border payments. Announced on July 1, the completion of phase three of ‘Project Nexus’ marks a significant milestone, introducing a comprehensive blueprint to streamline the connection of domestic instant payment systems (IPS). The project’s goal is to standardise the way IPS connects globally, allowing seamless and rapid cross-border transactions.

This advancement promises to simplify and expedite international payments, making them faster and more cost-effective.
