The Moldova Future Technologies Activity is a program funded by USAID, Sweden and UK Aid and implemented by Chemonics International Inc in the Republic of Moldova. The goal of the Future Technologies Activity is to enhance the competitiveness of Moldovan transformative sectors, including light manufacturing, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), precision engineering, creative industries, and digital media production, and to improve the country’s integration with Western markets in these sectors.
In the context of current trends in digitalization and the development of the online business environment, as well as recent studies on e-commerce and the digital economy, the Association of Banks of Moldova (ABM) in collaboration with Visa, and the Future Technologies Project funded by USAID, Sweden, and the UK Aid, have identified the need to deploy national communication and information campaigns to promote cashless payments among population segments that are reluctant to accept these payment methods.
