COPENAGHEN, Denmark and WARSAW, Poland, May 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
Eurogiro, founded in 1993 by twelve European postal organisations, is a Danish commercial company whose aim is to support and develop worldwide business relating to cross-border payments related to retail and wholesale financial services.
