Workshop on financial inclusion: trends, developments and policy tools


 27-28 June 2023  Geotag for agendaEbene, Mauritius (hybrid event)



As increasing numbers of people across Africa become included in the formal financial system, often for the first time, it is important that there is an appropriate framework of financial consumer protection in place, as well as programmes and initiatives designed to improve financial literacy. Such measures help ensure that consumers are able to take advantage of the opportunities offered by greater financial inclusion in order to improve their financial well-being.

Organised by the Regional Centre of Excellence (RCE) and the OECD, this workshop built on three components:

  • Knowledge-sharing sessions on financial literacy, with the contribution of experts from the OECD and country representatives that are part of the OECD International Network on Financial Education.

  • Knowledge-sharing sessions on financial consumer protection, with the contribution of experts from the OECD and country representatives from the G20/OECD Task Force on Financial Consume Protection and FinCoNet.
  • Roundtable discussion in which workshop participants discussed challenges and policy tools and developments to advance financial literacy, financial consumer protection and financial inclusion in the Southern and Eastern African region.


About the Regional Centre of Excellence

The RCE was inaugurated on 15 March 2019. The launching of the RCE in collaboration with the OECD is a première in the region and will enhance the reputation of Mauritius at international level. This initiative is a result of the Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) that was signed by the Government of Mauritius and the OECD in September 2018. This MOU laid down the foundations for collaboration between OECD and Mauritius to strengthen and support effective regulation, sound corporate governance and good conduct in the Southern and Eastern African regions.
