Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,

It gives me immense pleasure to address this august gathering at this opening session of this regional forum on "Emerging Opportunities and Challenges of Financial Inclusion in Asia Pacific Region". The theme of this Forum is something that is close to our hearts, and is a very topical issue in recent days. The need to address this issue has never been more significant primarily due to the benefits it will bring to our countries. I am confident that this Forum will help in deepening the understandings on the emerging issues of financial inclusion.
