Last week in Geneva, the ITU wrapped up a two-year project – the “Focus Group on Digital Financial Services and Financial Inclusion”. Several hundred organizations and people participated in the Focus Group, which produced research papers and policy recommendations on a wide variety of topics. The papers are available on the Focus Group website.

Glenbrook’s Carol Coye Benson and Allen Weinberg were active members of the group: Carol ran the “Ecosystem Working Group” and Allen led a group of people on in-depth research and exploration of topics relating to merchant acceptance of payments in emerging economies. Glenbrook partner Elizabeth McQuerry was at the closing session, participating on a panel discussion of “New Frontiers in Regulation.”

Hear Carol’s perspective on the effort.
