Speaking during the event, Mr. Dharamasiri Kumarathunga, Director, Payments & Settlements Department of CBSL said, “In terms of digital payments and transactions, Sri Lanka is far behind many of its neighbouring countries and there is much more to do in order to develop the country’s payments and settlements system. Several committees have been appointed to steer these areas. I must state that the initiatives of iPay and LOLC Finance in digitalisation and automation is truly admirable and many other institutions can learn from this proven model”.
Mr. Conrad Dias, Director / Chief Executive Officer of LOLC Finance PLC said, “iPay is the number one payments platform now in terms of the number of transactions and customer acquisitions and iPay has been maintaining this position month on month continuously. But the potential is far greater because we have a platform beyond payments. iPay is an ecosystem, it’s not just a payment app. We have already launched this platform in Cambodia and hope to launch it very soon in Myanmar and Pakistan as well”.

There is immense potential for future growth for iPay both here and overseas and as a group we remain committed to greater automation and digitalisation to facilitate customers and streamline operations for greater efficiency”.
