Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between financial inclusion, digital technology and economic growth. A dynamic panel data analysis examines 84 countries since the GFC period. The results show that there is a positive and significant effect of financial inclusion and digital technology on country economic growth. In addition, digital technology plays a role in complementing the effects of financial inclusion on economic growth, implying that consolidation efforts should take place in improving financial ecosystems via digital technology infrastructure.
