MTN Group Limited Key Developments

WorldRemit and MTN Group Partner in Uganda, Rwanda and Zambia

WorldRemit and MTN Group have announced a partnership in which WorldRemit customers can now send money instantly to MTN Mobile Money wallets in Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia. The launch follows the signing of a global partnership agreement earlier this year, to enable WorldRemit customers all over the world to send international remittances to MTN's Mobile Money customers. MTN Mobile Money enables users to perform utility payments, save money, purchase airtime and access a range of mobile financial products. In keeping with its aim to accelerate the rollout of international remittance, MTN launched a cross-border mobile money transfer service between Uganda and Rwanda in August. The service allows customers in both countries to transact via MTN Mobile Money with the same simplicity as for a local money transfer. MTN also offers a mobile money cross-border remittance service between Ivory Coast, Benin, Burkina Faso and Niger. The remittance corridor between Kenya and Rwanda is the latest addition to MTN's Mobile Money bouquet of services.

The collaboration is expected to provide a stronger basis to compete globally in the changing telecoms industry. Many of the initial strategic areas of cooperation are aiming to improve both companies' stand in regards to enterprise customers, including services to multinational companies in each other's footprint, collaboration in machine-to-machine (M2M) and new digital products and services targeting the business-to-business (B2B) segment. Other areas where they may engage going forward include the alignment in key technology projects in network and IT, new initiatives like mobile money and big data projects as well as possible collaboration on commercial and marketing strategies. South Africa-headquartered MTN operates in 22 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East with 233 million subscribers across its operations.
