COPENHAGEN, Denmark and WARSAW, Poland, May 9, 2011 - Tomorrow sees the opening of Eurogiro's annual Community
Meeting, during which more than 60 members of the Eurogiro network, present
in 48 countries, will come together to share strategies for the development
of the money transfer business throughout the world. Many payments made in
Poland and transferred rapidly and reliably to a beneficiary in another
country are likely to have been carried out automatically by Eurogiro, a
partner of important postal organisations, banks and networks in the
international electronic payments business.
"It is our firm intention to see to it that members associate
Eurogiro with "quality, easiness and user friendliness", confirms Tjeerd
Rienstra, CEO of the Copenhagen-based company. In Rienstra's view, this means
guaranteeing that all cross-border payments can be processed simply, quickly,
cost-effectively and having a REACH all over the world, even in rural areas.
