The report, Inclusive Growth and Development: 2015 Antalya Development Roadmap, highlights the work of the G20 Development Working Group (DWG) in 2015 and looks ahead to 2016.
In 2015, the DWG and the Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI) collaborated with the Investment and Infrastructure Working Group (IIWG) on the G20 Joint Action Plan on SME Financing. The new GPFI private sector engagement strategy and the SME Finance Forum, which will evolve into a global membership body for private and public financial institutions, will be central instruments for the private sector engagement, the report says.
In addition, the GPFI worked on uncovering innovative ways to finance the agricultural sector in developing countries, in order to mainstream food security in financial inclusion, the report states, and developed a Consultation Document for the 2nd edition of the GPFI White Paper “Global Standard-Setting Bodies and Financial Inclusion for the Poor- The Evolving Landscape,” to be released with the active participation of the standard-setting bodies’ secretariats.
"The DWG welcomes the GPFI’s continued work on strengthening financial literacy and consumer protection, including development of a policy handbook on implementing national strategies for financial education and core competencies on financial literacy for youth," the DWG report says.
