In November 2017, APEC Leaders endorsed the APEC Action Agenda on Advancing Economic, Financial and Social Inclusion. Financial inclusion is crucial for inclusive growth and development. In 2018, the FMP will focus on the important role played by financial literacy and the opportunities presented by financial technology.
The two day workshop for PNG government officials will improve their capacity to identify actions to improve consumer digital financial literacy and awareness. At the end of the activity, we expect participants will have a stronger understanding and knowledge of the characteristics, advantages and risks of digital financial services for consumers and a stronger knowledge of activities, channels and content that can be used to improve consumers’ digital financial literacy and awareness. Participants will also develop an action plan to improve digital financial literacy in PNG.
The workshop will be held in Port Moresby in June 2018.
