THE first round of the Financial Services Demand Side Surveys (DSS) reveal that Fijians, Solomon Islanders and Samoans have rich, varied and active lives.
The report titled Benchmarking financial inclusion in Fiji, Samoa, and Solomon Islands: Findings from the first national demand side surveys, presents a synthesis and comparison across the three surveys. It was released by the Pacific Financial Inclusion Programme this week.
A statement from PFIP said in late 2014 and early 2015, demand side surveys were held in Fiji, Samoa and Solomon Islands.
It said the surveys were jointly supported by (PFIP) and the Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) and were led in-country by the Central Banks of the three countries with the assistance of their respective National Bureaus of Statistics.
