HÀ NỘI — The National Payment Corporation of Việt Nam (NAPAS) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on market development co-operation with KEB Hana Card Co., Ltd and Alliex Vietnam JSC.
Under the MoU, the participants will co-operate to study and build a feasibility report on the development and efficient management of a shared point of sale (POS) network in Việt Nam.
They will share experiences as well as market research results from advanced countries in order to recommend a systematic solution in developing card payments through card-accepting equipment at the POS, promoting the development of the domestic card payment market, which is one of the areas of focus for NAPAS in recent years.
With KEB Hana Card and Alliex’s cashless payment experience and technology and experience in providing services and infrastructure for interconnected card systems among Vietnamese banks that are NAPAS members, the co-operation is expected to help realise the State Bank of Việt Nam’s plan to develop bank card payments through card acceptance equipment by 2020.
