Every day presents us with new challenges that force us to develop new ways of cooperating internationally. We are entering into new alliances, and, in particular, we are expanding our cooperation with our Chinese partners. We are currently working on making Mir payment system cards work in our country. We hope that in the very next days or weeks we will make a final push and the Mir payment system will be fully adopted by our country by the end of the year. That is why the number of Russian tourists coming to our country has been growing lately, because there are fewer and fewer difficulties to pay. We keep working — Alberto Quinones Betancourt, Director General of Systems Technology and Development, Central Bank of Republic of Cuba.
We have already developed a domestic payment system for our citizens. The challenge is to create a system that works on all the platforms that operate in our country. We have to go to the global electronic space, and ensure that all the transactions that our citizens make are paid. In this sense, we have already taken several initiatives, and we are far advanced in talks with our partners from Russia, Turkey, and China — Calixto Jose Ortega Sanchez, President, Central Bank of Venezuela.
The solution in the future is cooperation. Honest cooperation. If one side wants to maximize benefits, it will not work, it will not be sustainable. Therefore, both sides should benefit at the same time. Both sides. So this form of international cooperation has to work together — Emrah Sener, Deputy Governor, Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey.
Bilateral treaties are very important, but at the same time, I don't think this is the natural and correct solution. This is because the proper solution would be a new world order, in which new technologies and new world standards are included. So that countries like us can use it — Tarek Raouf, Chief Executive Officer, Egyptian Banks Company (EBC).
