Philippe Brassac : inclusive finance, a voluntary engagement
Although poverty is decreasing overall worldwide, there remain significant inequalities. In some regions, these inequalities are at a 30-year high. This situation is humanly unacceptable. And it also has consequences for the health of our economies. The reality for the people concerned is that they do not have easy access to employment, healthcare, goods and services, financing and banking and payment services. A reality that also prevents economies from developing and growth that is more just and more widely shared. For this reason, initiatives to promote an inclusive economy are on the increase; for instance, the business coalition “Business for Inclusive Growth” (B4IG) which was launched during the G7 Summit in Biarritz at the end of last month and which Crédit Agricole chose to join.
