channel footprint making electronic payments and digital finance a reality.
Post PNG chief operating officer Ben Davis said Digicel PNG and Post PNG were innovative and customer-centric institutions.
“This partnership will expand e-wallet capabilities, build upon a strong agent channel and further accelerate the digital financial growth across PNG,” he said.
Davis said it was also in line with the government’s theme of harnessing inclusive opportunities and embracing the digital future.
“We will promote the participation of all groups in the digital economy including women and those from remote and rural areas to have access to financial services through our branches nationwide.”
Digicel PNG chief executive officer Colin Stone in acknowledging the support of the Post PNG management said a reliable and liquid agent channel was vital when building the mobile money ecosystem.
“This partnership with Post PNG will enable over 100,000 and growing CellMoni customers to deposit funds into their CellMoni wallets or withdraw cash from any post office.
