The Centre for Excellence in Financial Inclusion (CEFI) was established by the Bank of PNG under the Association Incorporation Act and officially launched on 24th April 2013 by the Honorable Prime Minister Peter O’Neill. CEFI was endorsed by the National Executive Council (NEC) as the industry apex organization mandated to coordinate, advocate and monitor all financial inclusion activities in PNG.
CEFI has been coordinating the implementation of PNG’s first National Financial Inclusion Strategy (NFIS), where it reflected PNG’s commitment to implementing the Maya Declaration, with the aim of bringing together initiatives from public and private sectors, financial and non-financial institutions and other stakeholders. Since the launch of the first NFIS, unprecedented progress for financial inclusion has been achieved after two (2) years of implementing the strategy.
Building on the successes of the first NFIS, in collective collaboration CEFI and BPNG developed the second NFIS 2016 – 2020 in alignment with the National Informal Economic Policy 2011 -2015 and it was launched in December 2016. The new Strategy provides the strategic framework for coordinating, advocating and sustaining efforts in partnerships with all stakeholders to achieve the common vision of creating an inclusive and sustainable PNG. Moreover, the action plans framed in the Strategy provides the platform for creating innovative partnerships to enable access for PNG to partake in wealth creation and economic development.
CEFI’s Vision, Mission and values are within the context of its overarching objectives that has been developed in order to implement the Financial Inclusion agenda. CEFI is in the process of institutional strengthening through the development of its own organisation structure and appointment of additional staff to build the necessary staff capacity.
