09:00 – 13:00 – Tax Stamp & Traceability Seminar – International Tax Stamp Association (ITSA)

Join ITSA for a discussion on current developments and best practices in the world of tax stamp and track and trace systems for tobacco, alcohol, cannabis and other products subject to excise, customs and other taxes.

The seminar will include presentations from government tax authorities and solution providers and will be of especial interest to those authorities in the region looking to introduce tax stamp and traceability for the first time, or upgrade existing programmes. 

14:00 – 17:00 – Identity – The Emerging Behaviour of Fraudsters in the Modern World – The Obstacles in Future-Proofing Document Design

Michael van Gestel, Onfido (UK)

The digital revolution is here to stay. Consumers, and therefore governments and corporations, demand self-service, and with it, remote document authentication at scale. With recent advances in AI, fraudsters have access to better tooling, and limitless source material.

In this seminar, we will take a deep dive into the statistics and findings of Onfido’s 2024 Identity Fraud Report; in particular, the emerging behaviour of fraudsters in the modern world. We will look at the current methodology employed by organised fraud rings, the importance of document design in their approaches, and potential solutions.

09:00 – 17:00 – Currency – The Future of Cash

Led by Guillaume Lepecq, Cash Essentials

The debate around the evolution of money is primarily dominated by technology and the underlying assumption that the digitalisation of money is inevitable and desirable. Technology has been the main driver behind this digitalisation, and while it comes with undeniable benefits in terms of convenience and efficiency, it also generates high social costs.

The objective of this seminar is to broaden the discussion on the future of money. How can we create a monetary system which challenges the narrative of a future dominated by technological innovation? How can we create a future monetary landscape which improves inclusion, increases sustainability, reinforces resilience and protects privacy?

The seminar will focus on understanding the changing cash environment and what stakeholders are doing to optimise the cash ecosystem and ensure the future viability and sustainability of cash. It brings together all stakeholders to discuss new strategies for shaping the cash ecosystem of the future.

The seminar will address three key questions:

  • How can stakeholders – central banks, banknote printers, cash management companies, banks, fintechs… – contribute to shape a viable and sustainable cash ecosystem in an increasingly uncertain environment?
  • Is cash a public good? Or a basic right? If so, what are the policy implications in terms of access and acceptance, resilience and the funding of the cash cycle?
  • What can we learn for the global evolution of cash demand?

In addition, Round Table Conversations will offer the opportunity to debate the burning questions, ranging from declining transactional demand for cash; the need for a more resilient cash cycle in a multi-crisis environment or the loss of privacy in a less-cash environment. Participants will be invited to deploy their collective intelligence to assess and discuss some of the key challenges and opportunities facingExit Visual Builder the future of cash.
