Ehab Nasr, deputy governor of the Central Bank of Egypt for banking operations and payment systems, said that he is currently conducting final studies to allow the use of “Meeza” cards in the UAE and Jordan, within the framework of the financial and banking cooperation agreement between the central banks of the three countries.
Nasr said that this step will make it easier for Egyptians who hold privilege cards to use them in completing financial transactions in the two countries.
He added that it was agreed with officials from the two countries to work on linking the payment systems in the three countries with the aim of facilitating for the Egyptians working abroad to make cash transfers to their relatives in Egypt easily and at a lower cost.
He explained that it is expected to start activating the work of “Meeza” cards in the two countries, as soon as the studies and operating systems are completed, noting that there are approvals from the authorities in the three countries, especially as it is a priority for cooperation between them.
Tarek Amer, CBE Governor discussed yesterday with Khaled Muhammad Balama, Governor of the Central Bank of the Emirates, and Ahmed Al-Sharkas, Governor of the Central Bank of Jordan, opportunities to expand joint cooperation in the financial and banking fields.
