Sharing Financial Sector Knowledge.

Financial Sector Knowledge Sharing Project

Project Dates: July 2008 - September 2012
In the face of globalization, countries worldwide must strengthen and deepen their financial systems to achieve growth and alleviate poverty.

A dynamic financial sector that provides access to diverse financial products and services for businesses and individuals creates economic opportunities and widespread benefits. Yet, many emerging and rebuilding economies have significant gaps in their financial infrastructure, inadequate legal and regulatory frameworks, and limited expertise that hinders efforts to create and maintain sound financial sectors.

The USAID Financial Sector Knowledge Sharing project tested innovative approaches to financial sector development and facilitated the collection, analysis, and dissemination of best practices and lessons learned. Through these activities, the project strived to increase access to financial services and developed well-functioning markets worldwide.
