Shaping the Financial Access Agenda

Share

CGD is shaping the international agenda to increase access to financial services for poor people and small and medium businesses in the developing world—a key to shared global prosperity. The G-20 Toronto Summit in June 2010 adopted Principles for Innovative Financial Inclusion that closely mirror those of a CGD task force report, Policy Principles for Expanding Financial Access released in 2009 and led by Liliana Rojas-Suarez.

The CGD report complements the International Monetary Fund’s Access to Finance Project, an online database that underpins research into the provision of consumer financial services worldwide.
