Friday, June 8, 2012 - 09:05

Ecobank mobile products launched. Clients will be able to check bank balance, mini-statements as well as transfer their funds from mobile wallets to the Ecobank accounts.

THE Government has said it will continue ensuring that there is an enabling business environment in Zambia by introducing business-friendly policies and discard negative ones.

Speaking at the launch of Ecobank mobile products which were being implemented in partnership with Airtel Zambia, Commerce, Trade and Industry Permanent Secretary Stephen Mwansa said the partnership would create a link between access to communication and finance.

Mr Mwansa said the Government was happy the two unrelated fields were coming together to provide such innovative products and services that were aimed at enhancing the lives of the people in Zambia.

“There seems to be no link between banking and telecommunication, but we know that when you put them together you are addressing twofold need, that is access to finance and communication,” he said.

He said it was the belief of the Government that Ecobank mobile money would indeed provide the much-needed convenience and further simplify banking process.
