Preparations towards the much awaited Financial Inclusion Expo next week is well underway and all the major financial institutions in the country have now confirmed their participation.
A statement from the Central Bank of Solomon Islands today says the two day Expo will be the first ever to be held in the country at the National Art Gallery in Honiara.
It says a number of events will take place including financial literacy workshops, product awareness campaigns, quizzes and oratory contests for school children, public quiz, and live speech on important topics covering financial services, consumer protection and other related topics by eminent persons.
All the commercial banks, insurance companies, National Provident Fund, microfinance companies, savings clubs, Solomon Post, Ministry of Women, Our Telekom, Bmobile and other institutions will be erecting stalls and interacting with the public.
Financial Inclusion is about providing access to a range of appropriate and affordable financial services to all the people in the Solomon Islands- particularly focusing on low income and marginalised segments.
