On October 10, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) published its priorities for the next phase of work under the G20 Roadmap for Enhancing Cross-Border Payments. According to the FSB, the plan includes steps to strengthen external engagement during the next phase of the group’s work. The FSB noted three priorities for the payment program’s next phase, which include: (i) payment system interoperability and extension; (ii) legal, regulatory and supervisory frameworks; and (iii) cross-border data exchange and message standards. The FSB further noted that it will coordinate work to develop further details of the actions that will take place to follow through with the plan, including discussions with industry participants. The updated roadmap will be provided during the first G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors meeting in 2023.
