(GB) and Virtual Remittance Gateway (VRG) Pakistan signed an agreement for launching
digital payment products & services and Mobile Wallet for S-Paisa customers in AJ&K and
GB. The signing ceremony was held at HQ SCO and was attended by SCO and VRG
By signing this contract SCO has achieved yet another milestone towards the provision of AMA (Asaan Mobile Account) scheme that is a main focus of SBP’s National Financial Inclusion Strategy (NFIS).
