Realizing financial inclusion in Asia – achievements and challenges, 2014
The 2014 Forum provided an opportunity for stakeholders to review the current trends, recent achievements, ongoing challenges and opportunities within the region relative to financial inclusion and discuss how these developments are impacting different markets. Through this review process the Forum organizers identified a number of key priorities for future initiatives of the Advisory Group on APEC Financial System Capacity Building to further support financial inclusion. The program comprised seven sessions, based on specific experiences of six economies, and the seventh addressed regional developments and key initiatives. This report follows the Forum program, providing a summary of key points for each economy and regional developments identified by participants.
