Luanda - The number of users of Automatic Telling Machine has increased from 175,000 to 411,000 a 34 percent increase  in the period from March to November this year, the director of Business Development of the Interbank Services Company (Emiss), Sílvia Pires, said Wednesday.

Silvia Pire, who was speaking to Angop, at the third Conference on "Digital Transformation of Banking", justified that the increase of users of this service is due to social confinement imposed by the Covid-19.

In the meantime, the Group’s CEO, Nuno Fernandes, said that the conference aims to update the taxes imposed by the covid-19 in the country, since the relationship between banking and customers is being marked by digital services.
