We are pleased to share the eighth annual report of the UN Secretary-General's Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development.

Financial inclusion is now firmly established as a powerful tool to improve lives and strengthen development. Great progress has been made. But with the Sustainable Development Goals on the horizon and inequality growing globally, the stakes are high.

This year's report lays out three priorities for action that could accelerate our momentum: ensuring development impact, promoting supportive policies for digital financial inclusion, and reaching neglected populations such as farmers, women, and small businesspeople.

Progress has value only if it is shared by all, and would not be possible without our shared commitment and support. I look forward to continuing our work together to make universal financial inclusion a reality.
