In the Philippines, we will hold an international conference on Mobile Money Transfer (MMT) in Asia.  The 2-day interactive workshop is designed to help  define the right MMT business model, while maintaining prudent financial sector regulatory practices. Particular focus will be given to the prevention of money laundering, the security of payment mechanisms and consumer protection in any given country.

In Zambia, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, we will hand over four supply trucks to local medical stores.  This is part of an ongoing USAID/Zambia initiative to improve health care services and commodity availability in rural areas.
