She argued that the digital euro could promote financial inclusion in disadvantaged communities by removing barriers such as transaction costs and red tape. The European Union Central Bank’s digital currency (CBDC) could help reduce the cost of money transfers. Published reports suggest safeguards and legal changes may be needed to address the problems and threats.
The queen declared that it is the responsibility of public sector officials to ensure that the financial system is accessible to all people and that it considers their requirements. So, let’s create a digital euro that benefits every one of Europe and visualize a better future.
Máxima became queen consort of the Netherlands in 2013. She occasionally uses her position to promote fintech as an inclusive tool, with a particular focus on CBDC. Since 1814, the Netherlands has constitutional monarchy. The monarch, King Willem-Alexander, served mostly as a ceremonial head of state. Additionally, Queen Maxima acts as the Special Envoy on Inclusive Finance for Development for the UN Secretary-General.
