About Payment Systems
Safe, efficient and effective Payment Systems play a fundamental role in the economy and promote financial stability in the country. These systems represent the channels where the transmission of funds occur between institutions, economic activities, financial activities and banking activities. The main role of these systems are the ability to smoothly settle financial obligations arising from these activities efficiently and safely.
