推动普惠金融发展,联合国推出专属援助基金FITAF

万国邮政联盟(后文简称UPU)是联合国的一个机构。

2019年起,UPU将正式推出一项数字金融服务项目,旨在通过其普惠金融技术援助基金(FITAF)覆盖非洲、亚洲和太平洋地区约80万人。

数据显示,如今全球仍有31%的成年人口无法参与到社会经济金融产业链中。其中,非洲占全球无银行账户人数比例为17%,而亚太地区为38%。

据了解,UPU本次服务将首先在贝宁、加纳、卢旺达和科特迪瓦推出,重点将放在邮政金融服务的数字化方面。

上述国家之所以首先入选,主要是因为这些国家的金融排斥性问题已经到了急需解决的底部。据了解,加纳成年人的金融服务覆盖率仅为48%,而卢旺达和贝宁也仅为37%和20%。

为了遏制这种情况,UPU将提供超过670,000个网点,覆盖这些国家的一些最偏远地区,使FITAF能够提供数字金融服务,推动当地普惠金融发展。

据悉,本次的项目将帮助邮政运营商建立支付、储蓄、保险和其他服务的移动金融解决方案,以便了解和探索数字金融的机遇。

UPU希望,借助FITAF在2021年前实施20个创新的数字邮政金融服务项目。

The Universal Postal Union (UPU), an agency of the United Nations has officially rolled out a digital financial service project targeted to reach around 800,000 people across Africa, Asia, and the Pacific under its Financial Inclusion Technical Assistance Facility (FITAF) in 2019.

This was born out of a need to reduce the number of people still unbanked around the globe, with data showing 31% of adults are not financially included in the world economy. Data also shows that Africa, contributes 17 % to the total number of unbanked adults around the world, with Asia and Pacific accounting for 38% of unbanked adults.

Towards providing financial inclusion for these unbanked adults, UPU would first launch this programme in Benin, C?te d Ivoire, Ghana, Rwanda, while also focusing on the digitalization of postal financial services.

African countries selected for the programme launch are countries in which their rates of financial exclusion need immediate intervention, with only 48% Ghanian adult being financially included, 37% in Rwanda, and 20% in Benin.

To arrest the situation, UPU would provide more than 670,000 outlets, reaching some of the most remote areas in these countries to expand financial inclusion with FITAF building capacity to offer the digital financial services.

The projects announced will help postal operators set up mobile financial solutions for payments, savings, insurance, and other services, so as to understand and explore the opportunities in digital finance. Through FITAF, the UPU aims to implement 20 innovative digital postal financial services projects by the end of 2020.
