The Maya Declaration
On the occasion of the 3rd Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) Global Policy Forum—the annual flagship event of the AFI (touted to be the most vital forum for financial inclusion policymakers in the world)—held at Riviera Maya, Mexico, in September 2011, the AFI fraternity pledged to the establishment of and adherence to the commitments of the “Maya Declaration.”
The Maya Declaration, as the AFI member initiative geared towards promoting and inspiring national commitments to financial inclusion, is the testament to the global dedication towards the initiation of determined domestic and global actions to ensure concrete financial inclusion. It is the flagship commitment platform that facilitates for the AFI-members to situate tangible financial inclusion aims, implement country-specific policy alterations, and present improvement feedbacks periodically. Subscribing to the Maya Declaration essentially means committing fully to the endeavour of championing financial inclusion.
