What it covers

WSBI members in Asia decided in 2016 to establish a working group on rural financial inclusion to further exchange best practices. As members' approaches to rural financial inclusion varies greatly, the workshop on 7-8 December aims to gather WSBI Asian members to analyse the strength and weakness of the different business models and brainstorm how members' projects in financial inclusion can be enhanced. Approaches include advocacy for a more supportive legal framework, development of new products and services, improved customer experience, equipment of smart but affordable technology solution.

​The Workshop will gather a small group of experts and encourage the engagement of all participants. Representatives from all participating institutions are expected to share information and insights, raise questions, comment on others’ statements, brainstorm and create discussions and debates, etc. The Workshop will focus on the exchange of valuable ideas and inspiration by participants and use group discussion to generate solutions.​
