UPCOMING WEBINAR: Exploring the relationship between mobile money regulation and usage

This webinar will explore the main findings of new GSMA research on the relationship between mobile money regulation and usage. The analysis combines data from the Mobile Money Regulatory Index and the Global Findex Database 2017 and covers almost 50,000 individuals across 46 countries. The results show compelling evidence that an enabling regulatory framework has a stronger association with mobile money usage among women compared to men, as well as among the poorest population segments. The webinar will also discuss the policy implications of this new research, especially the role of regulation in enabling greater access to financial services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
