A range of key considerations for stakeholders in the mobile money industry

Establishing an enabling framework to unleash the full potential of mobile money services requires robust dialogue between the public and private sectors. This Handbook is part of the GSMA’s efforts to promote such collaboration. It explores regulatory challenges that have faced the industry since its inception, and recommends approaches key stakeholders can take towards creating an enabling environment. The Handbook also accounts for recent regulatory considerations surrounding mobile money taxation and data privacy.

It is meant to serve as a practical guide to the issues, a window into industry perspectives, a signpost for regulatory best practice and a portal to more information, drawing on the GSMA’s unique insights into the mobile sector and mobile money industry.
