Central Bank of Sri Lanka and IFC Launch the Country’s First National Financial Inclusion Strategy to Boost Financial Inclusion for All

Sri Lanka's first National Financial Inclusion Strategy (NFIS), launched this week, aims to make financial services more accessible, efficient, and affordable for all households and businesses in the country.

The NFIS is a joint effort led by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka—with technical and financial assistance from IFC, a member of the World Bank Group—under the IFC-DFAT Women in Work program. The development of this strategy was a multi-stakeholder effort supported by the government of Sri Lanka.
