WSBI becomes Asia Pacific Financial Inclusion Summit partner

Event explores renewed push to reduce number of unbanked, underbanked in Asia-Pacific region


BRUSSELS, 21 September 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. WSBI is one of supporting partners and is invited as a speaker in the session Technology Enabled Asset Building and Preservation.

The three-day Summit, taking place in Manila on 27-29 October 2015, consolidates two leading forums, the Citi-FT Financial Education Summit and the Asia Microfinance Forum, to create a new platform that reflects the integration of capability, access and other key elements that can deliver impact and scale in inclusive finance.
