December 09, 2023 (MLN): The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has issued draft guidelines on the Regulatory Sandbox, allowing SBP-regulated entities, FinTechs, and startups to participate in testing new products and business models, according to a press release issued by the central bank today.

The regulatory sandbox provides a controlled environment for innovators to test innovative products, business models, and technologies while the regulators understand their implications for financial stability and consumer protection.

As envisioned in SBP Vision 2028, the regulatory sandbox will encourage innovation in digital financial services and facilitate the existing and new market participants to build robust digital payments ecosystem in Pakistan.

Similarly, it will help SBP to issue instructions and regulations for new and innovative FinTech solutions, ultimately resulting in increased financial and digital inclusion in the country.

This initiative will also strengthen SBP’s engagement with stakeholders in shaping the future of the financial industry.

SBP has therefore invited banks, FinTechs, industry experts, public and all interested parties to participate in the consultation process.
