Under the Japanese G20 Presidency, the GPFI Forum will focus on the challenges and solutions to drive financial inclusion for older adults. The high-level symposium will take place on June 7th, in Tokyo, back-to-back with the second GPFI plenary meeting. The goal is to engage policy-makers in a dialogue around the financial needs of aging populations and policies that can help people better prepare for old age. The GPFI Forum will explore the multiple dimensions of aging, in order to develop comprehensive approaches to the financial inclusion challenges faced by older adults. The participants will debate the future of financial services and how policy interventions and digital innovations can help advance the financial well-being of the elderly.

Workshop participants are expected to draw up a roadmap that will be presented to G20 Ministers and Governors in the future.
