Our brand promise of delivering an exciting future continues to drive our awareness and leadership in new trends in digitalisation and technology such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. Again. Government’s agenda in the mobile payments sector has been nothing short of impressive and as a leading telco, we are committed to deploy our platform, innovative products and services in support of government’s agenda.”
