APEC delegates to discuss financial inclusion

Mar. 02, 2015

Delegates of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) will meet in Tagaytay City on March 3 and 4 to discuss financial inclusion.

The meeting is organized by the APEC Business Advisory Council and the Foundation for Development Corporation and will be hosted by the country’s Department of Finance.

The APEC Advisory Group for Financial Systems Capacity Building has been convening the Asia-Pacific Forum on Financial Inclusion since 2010 to provide policymakers and regulators with priority recommendations in relation to financial inclusion.

This year’s forum will seek to bring to the next level work that has been done on a number of issues in previous years’ forums and discussions under the APEC Finance Ministers’ Process (FMP).

Plenary sessions will conclude with a discussion of digital finance, the opportunities it presents and its implications for the provision of financial services and regulations.

The forum will conclude with reports on the outcomes of the various sessions and agreement among participants to progress initiatives and proposals to the APEC Finance Ministers.
