    Singapore aims for cashless society

    News in brief

    Singapore plans to reduce the role of cash and checks by encouraging banks to switch to digital payments, according to the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s (MAS) Ravi Menon. “Menon said the MAS is asking the country’s banks to pass on to their customers the full cost of paper-intensive services,” Bloomberg reports. “The MAS also wants to see a majority of those transactions made using cellphones, or national ID or other secure numbers, rather than bank account numbers.”
