ORGANIZER

Fundacja Rozwoju Obrotu Bezgotówkowego (Foundation for Development of Cashless Payments, FROB) is the initiator of projects aimed at accelerating dynamics of development of non-cash payments in Poland. Identifying barriers to market development, finding solutions to alleviate them, and proposing sustainable development solutions, are some of the most important FROB objectives. Activities pursued in the fields of information-education, legislation and analytics help to highlight the benefits to entrepreneurs and their organizations, public administration, financial supervisory institutions, payment organizations, banks and clearance agents. According to FROB, consumers who are users of electronic payment instruments should be the main beneficiaries of the Polish non-cash payment market development.
