WASHINGTON, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In a current CGAP.org blog series, CGAP's regional representatives comment on the highlights in financial inclusion from a regional perspective.

Priority issues differ greatly between regions. In Eastern Europe, for example, concerns persist over a growing confusion between commercial, high-interest consumer finance and traditional social purpose microlending. In Latin America, however, concerns are focused on increasing consumer debt and the possible development of a debt bubble. Other posts in the series address the economic opening of Myanmar, the commitment of the Nigerian government to bring financial exclusion down 20% by 2020, and political/economic progress in the Middle East.

While operating as a global organization, CGAP has regional teams working in countries across the world that help to advance CGAP's priority areas at a local and regional level. They deepen outreach and advocacy efforts, collect on-the-ground market intelligence, and integrate local priorities into CGAP's global agenda.
