The Bank of Russia, led by First Deputy Governor Olga Skorobogatova, is collaborating with the UAE regulator to establish a cutting-edge system for fast payments and settlements.
This initiative, announced at the Finopolis forum, aims to utilize the digital ruble to streamline financial transactions for both individuals and businesses.
The partnership signifies a commitment to financial innovation and positions these institutions at the forefront of the evolving digital landscape.
The digital ruble is expected to enhance transaction efficiency, fostering financial inclusivity and exemplifying a proactive approach to the future of finance.
"We will work out the fast payment system because the colleagues are ready with the digital ruble and we are ready.
If we solve the issue of client identification, then I think we will be able to build up a normal system of payments for citizens and the business between the two our countries in a year at the least," she stated.
In the past, the Bank of Russia predicted that in five to seven years, the entire system of cross-border payments will undergo a transition and be based on national digital currencies.
The FedNow Service will be available to banks in the United States and will enable individuals and businesses to send instant payments any time of day, any day of the year through their bank accounts.
The target launch date for the service remains 2023 or 2024, with a more specific time frame to be announced after additional work is completed.
The FedNow Service, alongside similar services provided by the private sector, will modernize the U.S. payment system and bring the benefits of instant payments broadly to communities across the country.
