04/24/2023 - 05/05/2023 at Ebene, Mauritius

The course introduces financial inclusion as an integral dimension of financial development-a perspective that has only recently received proper attention because for many years the discussion instead centered on the concept and measurement of financial depth. The course reviews the indicators currently used to measure financial development, its distinct macroeconomic impact, and the main policy strategies usually pursued. The course will cover how countries can develop capital markets (equity and bond markets). The course will describe strategies to increase access to finance for SMEs. The course will look at how best to develop a financial literary program to increase financial inclusion. Finally, the course will delve on Fintech as a tool to promote financial inclusion.
