MANILA, Oct 25, 2023 – (ACN Newswire via – In Southeast Asia, the Philippines stands as one of the most rapidly advancing economies. With a population of 106 million, the country boasts 50 million internet users and 34 million smartphone owners. Despite this, formal financial services remain accessible to only 20 million individuals, highlighting a significant gap in financial inclusion within the country.

Even with a population exceeding 100 million, the Philippines has rapidly emerged as a growing economy. However, a significant hurdle remains in the form of approximately 70 million unbanked individuals, severely constraining their access to both domestic and global financial networks.

Leveraging its digital payment achievements, the Philippine government has initiated multiple programs aimed at substantially boosting the uptake of digital transactions within the next two years. These endeavours are in line with its aspiration to cultivate a cash-lite economy and bolster financial inclusion rates. Officials anticipate that the integration of digital payment solutions will reduce transaction expenses and eliminate prevalent obstacles related to owning transaction accounts.
