ITU Focus Group on Digital Financial Inclusion

December 4-5, Geneva, Switzerland

Digital financial services can expand the delivery of basic, formal financial services to the poor through new technologies like mobile phones, electronic money and new distribution channels. This focus group will provide an initial, multistakeholder platform to discuss about regulatory and policy issues as well as innovations in digital finance and financial inclusion that may benefit from standardization. The focus group is chaired by Mr. Sacha Polverini from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. For more info, click here.
