The benefit to all collaborators goes without saying.
MasterCard, in its annual Borderless Payments Report, revealed that up to 44 percent of owners of SMEs in the Emirates said business has been better, with 66 percent posting growth in online sales and 77 percent planning to tap into more international markets. Another indication of the growing importance of cross-border payments is that small and medium enterprises in the UAE are earning more money compared with before the Covid-19 pandemic era, driven by the adoption of digital techniques and international sales opportunities.
Why the UAE?
Successive milestones in finance innovations have earned the UAE the distinction of being chosen as the inaugural site. The leading UAE exchange house registered a 212 percent increase in its digital money transfer transactions from January to December last year after introducing a mobile app before the pandemic outbreak. Another milestone is that the Central Bank of the UAE (CBUAE) has enhanced the speed and transparency of cross-border payments by collaborating with the leading payment providers.
The United Arab Emirates is currently under close scrutiny when the Washington Post revealed a classified US intelligence report detailing alleged UAE efforts to influence American politics. According to the report, the UAE has spent over $154m on lobbyists since 2016 and millions more on donations to US universities.
