EPIF is delighted to share with you its response to the Commission targeted consultation on the Digital Euro.

EPIF fully supports the ECB task of to promote the smooth operation of payment systems and we agree that the safety and efficiency of the payment system is essential for a stable and well-functioning financial system and contributes to confidence in the currency. EPIF agrees with the ECB that while cash is still the dominant means of payment and should remain an option for consumers, new technologies and the increasing demand for immediacy from consumers are changing the way European citizens pay and the role of fast electronic payments is expanding.
