The government is starting to intervene more in the country’s payment systems. On one hand, it is regulating the commissions charged by credit card providers to businesses. On the other hand, it is forcing all businesses to accept credit and debit cards as a means of payment. The increase in government intervention has to do with its intention to limit the country’s large informal economy and to increase tax collection. It is also a way to decrease tax evasion, which is still at a high level.
