BNM-AFI Member Training
Platform Economy & its Promise for Financial Inclusion
With rapid digitization, mobiles are now being used by two-thirds of the global population. The digital economy is moving towards platforms and aggregators that act as one-stop shops in providing entire ecosystems with the financial and non-financial needs of consumers. These platforms have shown significant potential for financial inclusion by providing access to information, markets and financial services to individuals and small businesses.
Given the complex partnerships involved, untested credit assessment models, data usage, market conduct implications, etc., the growth of platforms requires regulators and policymakers to relook and adapt their interventions.
At the end of the training, participants will be able to:
- Identify the steps needed to prepare for this envisaged shift to platform-based transactions
- Draw evidence and experience from platform providers in accelerating financial inclusion in preparation for these changes
- Design policy solutions using platform-based transactions from the financial inclusion perspective
Who should attend?
Those who will benefit the most from this training are technical experts working to develop policies and regulations for innovative financial services, specifically from national payments system, bank supervision and regulation departments or departments specifically working on the areas above indicated.
To enrich the training, participants will be expected to share their country experiences, actively participate in the exercises develop an action plan to be implemented as a follow up to the training.
