Background

CIFAL Jeju organizes an online workshop on Financial Inclusion and Boosting Prosperity that aims to support the Asian Pacific government officials and leaders of society for them to make and implement policies for inclusive and sustainable economic development.

Financial inclusion means “individuals and businesses have access to useful and affordable financial products and services that meet their needs delivered in a responsible and sustainable way[4]”. As a basis for sustainable development, inclusive finance will be essential in enabling people to escape poverty by facilitating investments in their health, education, and businesses. It should be properly noted that financial inclusion is featured (sometimes explicitly) in at least seven of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals. These include SDG 1 on eradicating poverty; SDG 2 on ending hunger; SDG 3 on profiting health and well-being; SDG 5 on achieving gender equality; SDG 8 on promoting economic growth; SDG 9 on supporting industry, innovation and infrastructure; and SDG 10 on reducing inequality.

By partaking in interactive discussions, participants will also be able to share best practices regarding the facilitation of inclusive finance in creating a sustainable future.
