Description

This policy brief looks at financial inclusion in APEC, starting with how it is being defined to the various financial inclusion and literacy programs being implemented within the region. It then examines whether these programs have translated into greater financial inclusion and improved access, especially increased use and knowledge of available financial products and services. A brief discussion on what can be done to advance financial inclusion in the region follows next.
