Digital disruption and inclusion: challenges and opportunities

A virtual conference hosted by the Asia School of Business and the Bank for International Settlements, 26-28 January 2022

Digital technology has long held the great promise of putting within reach the goal of financial inclusion. The achievements of digital technology seem to have gone beyond the low-hanging fruit of mobile payments and into micro-savings and micro-credit. Nonetheless, these remarkable technological advances seem to have yet to transform the lives of most of the poor.

This conference brought together some of the leading thinkers in digital technology and financial inclusion. The discussions assessed where we stand and allow an exchange of views on the best ways of moving forward.
