    NPCI and JCBI Enabled Acceptance of JCB Cards across ATMs & POS Terminals in India

    On 4 May 2017, National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) and JCBI announced the launch of JCB Card acceptance at ATMs and POS terminals in India. Through this strategic partnership, JCB Card acceptance coverage in India will reach about 100 per cent for both ATMs and POS terminals in the coming few years.

    This development enables JCB to serve the increasing number of tourists and business professionals, especially from Asia where JCB has a large number of cardmembers, with payment options at ATM and POS in India.

    The scope of this strategic partnership also covers issuance of RuPay-JCB Co-Badged Cards by NPCI member banks in India. This works as a RuPay Card in India and as a JCB Card outside the country.

    Mr. A. P. Hota, former Managing Director & CEO of NPCI, said, The NPCI-JCB collaboration is one of the most valued alliances for our homegrown card network, RuPay. We are pleased to provide access to about 225,000 ATMs and over 2 million

    POS terminals in India through our National Financial Switch and RuPay network. With such initiatives, both companies will continue to provide high value service to our esteemed customers.

    Mr. Ichiro Hamakawa, President and CEO of JCB and Chairman and CEO of JCBI, said, India, with its very large population and rapidly growing economy, has become a key market for our global expansion strategy. This business launch is a crucial step for us. In fact, this is one of the most meaningful moments in the history of JCB's global business in that 100% of the POS and ATM in India will be accepting JCB Cards. Also, I hope this launch can contribute to the success of The Year of Japan-India Friendly Exchanges, which was agreed between both governments.

    New KBank JCB Credit Card for Japan Enthusiasts and Travelers

    On 20 June 2017, Kasikornbank (KBank), a major commercial bank in Thailand, and JCBI introduced the KBank JCB Credit Card, offering a wide range of attractive privileges to accommodate Japanese culture and lifestyles. Mr. Pipit Aneaknithi, KBank President, explained, The popularity of Japan has continued to flourish in Thailand. Being among the most-visited destinations of Thai travelers, Japan welcomed 900,000 tourists from Thailand in 2016, generating the sixth-highest tourism receipts of worldwide visitors. In addition to charming shopping venues and unique cultural tourism sites, appealing marketing activities and promotional campaigns have been added as attractions for Thai customers.

    On account of all this, KBank has partnered with JCBI to launch the KBank JCB Credit Card under the concept, Superb Deals! for Japan Lovers. There are Platinum, Gold and Classic cards, beautifully designed in a modern Japanese style. More fun is found with card envelopes in a moir pattern that is animated when the card is pulled out of the envelope, unique among credit cards in Thailand.

    The KBank JCB Credit Card offers multiple exclusive privileges

    selected for Japan lovers to enjoy their experiences both in Thailand and Japan. Cardmembers, especially career people, who prefer Japanese food or shopping for Japanese brands, will get many more discounts and special offers from airlines, hotels and leading stores.

    Mr. Kimihisa Imada, President and COO of JCBI, commented, Thailand is one of JCB's top markets for business expansion and service provision to JCB cardmembers because of the growing popularity of Japanese culture in Thailand. The present cooperation with KBank is an important step for JCB's business strategy in Thailand, given that KBank is the market leader in the merchant business and credit card spending, as well as being JCB's strong business partner. This cooperation will offer KBank JCB cardmembers greater convenience in spending and traveling in both Thailand and Japan.

    LankaClear and JCBI Entered into a Strategic Partnership for Establishment of National Card Scheme in Sri Lanka

    On 20 June 2017, LankaClear (Private) Limited (LankaClear), owned by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka and all licensed commercial banks operating in Sri Lanka, and JCBI announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership for the establishment of the National Card Scheme (NCS). This partnership introduces the issuance of LankaPay-JCB Co-Badged Cards and jointly promotes the acceptance of such cards with JCB payment solutions.

    By integrating JCB payment solutions to LankaPay participant members and leveraging the planned interconnection between the payment networks of LankaClear and JCB, the LankaPay-JCB Co-Badged Cards issued by LankaClear participant members will be accepted globally via the JCB international network and locally through the LankaClear network.

    In addition, the strategic partnership will also facilitate the acceptance of JCB Cards at ATMs and merchants accepting LankaPay-JCB Co-Badged Cards across Sri Lanka. Both parties are targeting to complete the implementation and launch of the issuance and the acceptance of LankaPay-JCB Co-Badged Cards by the beginning of 2018.

    LankaPay-JCB Co-Badged Cards will be the first-ever JCB branded cards issued in the country. The acceptance of internationally issued JCB Cards in Sri Lanka is expected to reach the same level of acceptance as the LankaPay-JCB Co-Badged Cards issued in Sri Lanka. This will meet the demand of tourists visiting Sri Lanka, especially those from India, which is the biggest tourist contingent to Sri Lanka and where JCB Card will be issued in the future.

    Channa de Silva, General Manager and CEO of LankaClear,

    said, Our quest is to promote cost effective and efficient electronic transactions with
