On July 6th in Manila, IPA and <a href="http://www.bsp.gov.ph/">Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas</a> (with support from the Citi Foundation) co-hosted a workshop for 40 high- and mid-level policymakers and financial service providers interested in learning how rigorous evidence can help them better serve their customers. During the one-day event, attendees engaged in a series of discussions that encouraged them to think about how recent financial inclusion evidence applies to their institutions and how RCTs can be useful for decision-making. The event showcased evidence produced by evaluations funded by the Citi IPA Financial Capability Research Fund and included presentations by Amando Tetangco, Governor of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas; Aftab Ahmed, CEO of Citi Philippines; and Dean Karlan, professor at Yale University and President of IPA. The agenda and PowerPoint presentations from the event are available below. This workshop was the second in a series of three; the other two workshops were held in <a href="/event/evidence-financial-inclusion-i-new-findings-and-their-applications">Bogota</a> and <a href="/event/evidence-financial-inclusion-iii-new-findings-and-their-applications">Mumbai</a>.
