The Pacific region’s Central Banks and Finance Ministries adopted the MoneyPACIFIC ‘brand’ to provide an umbrella concept under which the financial capability of Pacific peoples could be addressed. A set of four regional goals were agreed to guide national level actions and to monitor progress. These 2020 MoneyPACIFIC Goals are supported and endorsed by the Forum Economic Ministers’ Meeting (FEMM) and South Pacific Central Bank Governors.
2020 MoneyPACIFIC Goals
- All schoolchildren to receive financial education through core curricula.
- All adults to have access to financial education.
- Simple and transparent consumer protection to be in place.
- To halve the number of households without access to basic financial services.
