According to the MoU, the two associations will facilitate links between mobile-phone service providers and commercial banks for the exchange of relevant information. This will help the banks make sure their clients’ transactions are secure after they register for the PromptPay e-payment service.

Last June, the Bank of Thailand and the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission signed an MoU on jointly regulating mobile banking services.
