2015 Annual Report to the Secretary-General

This past year, the Special Advocate focused on both global and national action—extending the boundaries of awareness and support, shoring up commitment and collaboration, and exploring innovative solutions to complex challenges. In dedicated country visits to China, Myanmar, and the Philippines; in speeches to students, policymakers, the private sector, and financial experts; in dozens of meetings with country leaders, business heads, and low-income clients; and in consultations with multilateral organizations such as the World Bank and the UN, she worked to break down barriers for those currently outside the financial system and to build a more inclusive future.
