Public and private sector efforts to broaden access to financial services in Asia and the Pacific, vital to advancing poverty reduction and inclusive growth, continue to accelerate but have thus far largely failed to achieve significant progress. Currently, basic credit provision generally remains the only financial product available to low income people and is offered at an interest rate of 40% on average in the region.
The 2019 Asia-Pacific Financial Inclusion Forum will explore how to establish an inclusive financial system that viably improves the economic and social health of the disadvantaged.
