Asian Development Bank’s Bambang Susantono in his welcome address at this conference highlighted how (i) a sharing economy gathers individuals, companies, governments, and policy makers to share information and resources, creating a network effect and impact that increases access and value for all involved; (ii) digital finance is changing the value proposition for customers and institutions, from microfinance to remittances to government to person payments; and (iii) digital technologies and big data now allow financial service providers to more effectively serve the financially excluded.
