  • October 05, 2015

Digital technology, regulatory changes and increased public and private sector engagement are fuelling a renewed push to reduce the number of unbanked and underbanked people in the Asia Pacific region. However much more needs to be done to ensure these efforts have the impact and scale to make a significant difference.

Join more than 500 practitioners, policy-makers, financial service providers and other stakeholders to debate these issues at the Asia-Pacific Financial Inclusion Summit, a major new initiative launched by the Citi Foundation, the Foundation for Development Cooperation and the Financial Times, in partnership with the Banking With The Poor Network.
