Video Interviews from the event: Entrevistas

This event will go down in history as the first ever remittances and financial services conference in Cuba. For three days, more than 135 attendees, from Cuba and from more than 16 countries in the world, participated in this event where we explored the new face of remittances to the island and its link to financial services, as well as migrant services such as packaging, airtime, internet access recharge, cards, banking, mobile financial services developments, etc. We are grateful to Banco Central and Fincimex for their help and to every participant for their spirit of collaboration, respect and their commitment to a brighter tomorrow where international services can be offered with ease, safety, transparency, efficiency, speed and reliability. We are eager to witness what comes next. Read our Blog here.
