Infographic: Asia's Impact


More than half the people in the world--54 percent or 4.3 billion--live in Asia. So, too, do more than 60 percent of the financially excluded. Given the continent's massive population, even a small percentage rise in financial access can change millions of lives. With dynamic growth and strong government interest in financial inclusion driving progress, Asia stands on the edge of major change, as the UNSGSA saw first-hand this year in trips to China, Myanmar, and the Philippines.
