The opportunity was made use to explain the participants on the benefits of using LankaQR-integrated payments. iPay was also able to attain a number of merchants on-boarding, during the event.
Mr. Dhammika Nanayakkara, Deputy Governor, Central Bank of Sri Lanka graced the occasion as the Chief Guest. Mr. D. Kumarathunga, Assistant Governor, Central Bank of Sri Lanka attended as the guest of honour. LOLC Finance PLC Head of iPay, Mr. Charitha Jayasinghe and the Regional Manager, Mr. Chaminda Ranaweera were also present at the event.
