The key challenges for m-banking/commerce will be identified. There will be a detailed discussion on the prospects, scope and possibilities of m-banking/ commerce in Pakistan. Different ways will be discussed to meet the challenges in this field such as technological, Government regulations etc.

Effects of m-banking on a common person will be analyzed and different individuals from the industry will share their experiences.

  • Around 6-7 years back when I gave presentation on mobile banking opportunities for telecom operator, a NUST senior faculty member couldn’t digest it, and all those present started laughing on the idea which wasn’t new but I presentedd some more additions to it.

    I see them organizing a workshop on it now.
