It also takes steps to reinforce integration of perspectives and experience from developing countries into global discussions and guidance on financial consumer protection and financial literacy.

The Subgroup focuses on identifying, scaling up, and improving the policy environment for successful models of SME financing, funding the winners of the SME Finance Challenge and launching an SME Finance Forum, a platform for knowledge sharing and dissemination of best practices. The Subgroup devotes special attention to three focal areas: improving SME access to finance in the poorest countries, improving access to finance for agricultural SMEs, and promoting access to finance for women entrepreneurs.
This is the Work Plan for the Subgroup on Regulation and Standard-Setting Bodies (SSBs). This GPFI Subgroup supports the implementation and promotion of the G20 Principles for Innovative Financial Inclusion into practice through providing information on the Principles and supporting various implementation activities.

Since its inception, the SME Finance Forum has worked in three main areas: knowledge-sharing, convening, and policy change.
