Central Bank Digital Currencies – what is the impact on cross-border payments?

Recent discussions on the introduction of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) have moved from ‘if they are coming’ to ‘when they are coming’. Indeed, efforts across the globe to introduce CBDCs are gaining momentum, with more than 85% of the world’s central banks undertaking some form of exploration. 
These central banks currently find themselves at different levels of advancement. Some are working on “proof of concept” testing, while others have actually launched a pilot program or are in full development. But to what extent could CBDCs actually disrupt the financial system?

Financial institutions are keen to understand the potential impact on cross-border payments as a means to make payments faster, cheaper and more reliable. 
There are of course many preconditions for CBDCs being used as a tool for cross border payments. These include among others improving regulatory, supervisory and oversight frameworks in addition to the key element of making them interoperable.
