Government and financially inclusive ecosystems
This report describes the challenges of the broader financial inclusion landscape and explores three roles that government can play in developing more financially inclusive ecosystems. It also discusses various ways in which the development community can support government actors to focus their efforts on this new inclusive ecosystem. Governments are increasingly interested in promoting financial inclusion. Three roles where government can have significant impact are: as promoter of retail and market level infrastructure, rules maker for that infrastructure and as driver of transaction volume.
