Advancing Financial Inclusion in a Digital Age: Asia Pacific Financial Inclusion Summit Kicks Off in Hanoi, Vietnam

Hanoi, Vietnam – The Asia Pacific Financial Inclusion Summit 2017 opened in Hanoi today, bringing together over 450 key stakeholders, thought leaders and practitioners to further the financial inclusion agenda in the region. 

Now in its second year, the Summit is organised by the Citi Foundation and the Foundation for Development Cooperation (FDC) in partnership with the Banking with the Poor Network and The Economist Group.  This year the State Bank of Vietnam is Official Host of the Summit.

Despite great progress made over the past decades in financial inclusion worldwide, some two billion adults remain unbanked, more than half of which are in Asia Pacific. 

Themed “Advancing Financial Inclusion in a Digital Age”, the Summit will explore the opportunities and challenges of the next generation of financial inclusion, and showcase the latest technology and innovations in financial products and services for the unbanked and underserved.
