Pacific Islands Working Group (PIWG): Building a collaborative dynamic between peers in the region

Most Pacific Island nations are archipelagos – these islands are scattered many hundreds of miles apart and typically have low population density. These circumstances make Pacific Islanders hard to reach through traditional brick-and-mortar banks. But new opportunities for extending financial services to hard-to-reach communities are emerging through improved technology and also policy innovations that maximize the potential of more traditional banking approaches in the Island context.
