Commenting on the award, ECOMMBX CEO & Managing Director Michael Charalambides reiterated the company’s mission and vision, noting that its objective was to create a techno-hub that is ideally equipped to process the transactions of small and medium sized businesses under a single ''platform to rule them all'' - a state of the art AI driven infrastructure that extends beyond the traditional means of just SWIFT and SEPA, capable of millisecond monitoring of every single transaction for maximum scrutiny and speed of execution.
With an eye on the future, Charalambides said: ''For companies hoping to penetrate the global market, Cyprus has great potential as a base for international business. It has a very favourable taxation system and a very strong financial institutional license under the Central Bank of Cyprus which has the right and power to passport across the European Union. Our aspiration is to become the next European unicorn as a company that is synonymous with innovation, transformation and digital services across the globe.''
