BPNG to reduce unbanked population

BPNG governor Bakani said the central bank aims to roll out financial inclusive programs around the country to reduce the large percentage of unbanked population.

“With the help of these programs, we will reduce the figure from 80 to below 50 percent in the near future because our financial inclusion programs are implemented in the country through banks and financial institutions,” Bakani said during the opening of a two-day financial exposition in Mt Hagen last Friday.
