The PSD2 will open new opportunities
The PSD2 Payment Services Directive requires the banks to open their customer interfaces to third parties. It allows our customer banks to develop new kinds of payment services and creates diverse cooperation opportunities. The PSD2 Directive is also a key factor to be taken into account in the basic banking system reform implemented by Samlink.
