推动普惠金融发展,联合国增设“数字金融工作组”

近日,联合国(UN)建立了一个名为“数字金融工作组”的全球工作组,计划利用金融科技的力量来推动实现可持续发展目标(SDG)。

工作组成员来自发达国家和发展中国家的不同行业。工作组主席由南非Absa CEO Maria Ramos和联合国开发计划署署长Achim Steiner联合担任。

联合国秘书长António Guterres说道:"短短六年时间,技术就让12亿人享受到了普惠金融,而普惠金融也是我们的重要目标之一。"

"但我们才刚刚开始挖掘数字金融和投资的潜力,以实现可持续发展目标和《巴黎气候协定》中的更多议程。"

新成立的工作组成员包括投资社区专家、资本市场、政府、民间团体,以及数字支付领域的银行和公司。其中包括DBS、蚂蚁金服、肯尼亚中央银行和世界经济论坛。

联合主席Steiner指出"有望通过金融科技驱动的解决方案来推动可持续发展"。也就是说,将个人储蓄引入政府债券等长期投资,以使用区块链和代币化来支持可再生能源发展。

但是,Steiner认为目前此类创新大部分都是单独的解决方案:"我们需要了解如何利用数字化将资本流引导到与可持续发展目标相关的重要工作,包括从生物多样性到连接农村经济与全球市场机遇,迄今为止,金融科技革命基本上还没有触及到这些领域。"

数字金融工作组将于2019年1月在达沃斯召开会与,预计明年九月份向秘书长呈交初步建议报告。

The United Nations (UN) has launched a global task force that will use the power of fintech to advance its sustainable development goals (SDGs).

The “Task Force on Digital Financing” consists of people from a range of sectors from both developed and developing countries. It is co-chaired by Maria Ramos, Absa CEO in South Africa, and Achim Steiner, Administrator of the UN Development Programme.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres says: “We have already seen how technology has helped expand financial inclusion – itself an important goal – by 1.2 billion people in just six years.

“But we have only just begun to tap the potential of digital finance and investment to meet the broader agenda set forth in the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change.”

The new task force includes experts from the investment community, capital markets, government, and civil society, as well as banks and firms in digital payments. Some of the names include DBS, Ant Financial, Central Bank of Kenya and World Economic Forum.

Co-chair Steiner pointed to “promising examples of fintech-driven solutions that advance sustainability”. Namely, channelling personal savings into long-term investment vehicles such as government bonds to using blockchain and tokenisation to support renewable energy developments.

However, Steiner reckons that to date most such innovations are standalone solutions: “We need to understand how to harness digitalisation to direct the flows of capital to vital work linked to the SDGs, including areas from biodiversity to connecting rural economies with global market opportunities and which, to date, remain largely untouched by the fintech revolution.”

The Task Force on Digital Financing will meet in Davos in January 2019 and is expected to present its preliminary report of recommendations to the Secretary-General in September next year.
