"The 2019 AFI Annual Report marks the first year of the implementation of the Phase III Strategy (2019–2023), which aims to strengthen AFI’s position as a global policy leadership alliance in financial inclusion."
In 2019, members reported 682 policy and regulatory changes in 79 developing and emerging economies. These policy changes have helped members address priority financial inclusion challenges in their countries in line with the AFI Accords, and are intended to create an enabling environment for advancing financial technologies in areas such as SME finance and inclusive green finance, as well as address barriers facing disadvantaged segments of the population, such as women and youth. The 2019 AFI Annual Report was presented to the AFI Membership Council at the 2020 AFI Annual General Meeting. Download this report or read it in full screen.
