The role of the public sector and public-private cooperation in the era of digital currency growth

Public sector institutions globally have been increasingly called upon to take actions, develop perspectives and maintain oversight of emerging forms of digital currency.

Public-private cooperation and intergovernmental cooperation over stablecoins and CBDC will play an important role in their responsible deployment, with opportunities for cooperation over consumer protection, data privacy and data management, and coordination over cross-border and multi-lateral CBDC arrangements, among other opportunities.
