As far as Visa’s strategy on capturing a share of new flows goes, Government payments are a significant part of it, be it the government making payments to suppliers or social payments in form of disbursements or even accepting tax and council payments from citizens. At the same time, Governments are leading the way in launching big innovations in payments (think CBDCs, open banking) and in dealing with the big challenges of our times (climate, sustainability). We are looking to partner with governments around the world as they drive ambitious plans in a variety of areas both payments and otherwise.
As the new VGS team, we will be leading the company efforts in developing our strategy, leveraging expertise in various groups around the company and developing comprehensive government solutions including Disbursements, SME Digitization, Government payments, Citizens paying governments, urban mobility, Tourism Insights or Central Bank Digital Currencies.
