Cash is at a cornerstone. Challenged by COVID and the COVID-based marketing of contactless as the “safest means of payment”, the volume of cash payments has dropped sharply in the last two years, by fear of contamination. Yet, the war in Ukraine starting by end of February has led to a substantial increase in cash demand, as does any crisis, so much so that countries which thought they could do without cash have suddenly rediscovered it, by fear of disruption of alternative – electronic – forms of money. 2023 could see the adoption in the eurozone of the e-euro, the first European central bank digital currency.
This is a preview of topics to be tackled at the 2023 ESTA Conference the theme of which is “Cash is Competitive”.
Set just outside the historic entrance to Valletta, the Grand Hotel Excelsior 5* offers stunning views of Marsamxett Harbor and Manoel Island. The conference room enjoys direct daylight as well as the expo area which will host all coffee breaks and lunches.
