There are huge opportunities for innovation. UPI should become a tool of financial inclusion and empowerment for the entire world. We have to work together for that. I suggest that our financial institutions should also have maximum partnership with fintech to increase their reach,” PM Modi said.

India has emerged as one of the fastest growing ecosystems for fintech innovation. Prime Minister Modi’s government has played a key role in leading the globalization of India’s digital payment infrastructure. Prime Minister Modi’s top priority is to ensure that the benefits of UPI are not limited to India, but other countries also benefit from it.
Meanwhile, India and Singapore last month connected their online payments systems, Unified Payments Interface (UPI), and Singapore’s Paynou. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong participated in the virtual launch event. The integration of these two payment systems of both countries will enable citizens of both countries to transfer border remittances faster and at a lower cost. People of both countries can send money in real time using QR code based or bank account linked mobile numbers.
