Innovation can often move a lot faster than the bureaucracy - and sometimes that’s a good thing when it comes to risk and regulation.

But with payments technology growing, evolving, and offering solutions to some of the world’s big problems - is it time for governments globally to catch up?

Our amazing panel discuss how governments and payments technology work together, the potential solutions from blockchain, and how the future of payments will shape the future of our biggest economies.
