A Global Wave of Financial Inclusion Targets?
November 9, 2012 Editor 0
On October 23, Nigeria joined a fast-growing list of countries making headline commitments to financial inclusion targets and actions,by launching a new Financial Inclusion Strategy.
A total of 35 countries have now made commitments through the ‘Maya Declaration’ of the Alliance for Financial Inclusion (a global network of financial regulators), including 19 as recently as September 2012. 17 countries committed in June 2012 to targets, actions, and coordination platforms through the new G20 Financial Inclusion Peer Learning Program. These new commitments and targets could have a significant impact in advancing financial inclusion, if the challenges in meeting them can be overcome.
