Central Bank Digital Currency: Key Developments and Relevance in the Post COVID-19 Monetary Environment

Webinar as part of the Qatar Financial Centres Webcast Series, at the sidelines of our Annual General Meeting

The Chinese central bank started trials with digital currency in April. Bank of Japan also announced it would step up research into the topic. The European Central Bank launched a public consultation earlier in October on the possible issuance of a “digital euro”. With the accelerated digitization of commerce, trade, government, health care, and financial services in the backdrop of the COVID-19 outbreak, the topic will no doubt become more relevant moving forward.
