Inclusive Tech Lab > Interoperability
Core focus area


In the world of mobile money, interoperability has been one of the industry’s north stars for years, as it holds the promise of an interconnected world in which people in emerging markets can send money to each other regardless of the mobile money service they are using. The mobile money industry is moving in the direction of interoperability, however, support by and the independent facilitation of the GSMA is often sought. Within this scenario, the Lab opens a dedicated workstream to support the industry.

This workstream is dedicated to interoperability of financial services, from researching the different technical models and releasing publications, to exploring how to test it and developing technical assets to assist mobile money providers in advancing the ecosystem.
