Abstract: This paper presents an assessment of financial inclusion in Suriname, mainly from the Central Bank’s perspective. It examines existing data on financial inclusion and policy initiatives and measures the Central Bank of Suriname has taken to stimulate financial inclusion. This research is mainly conducted through desk studies and is supported by interviews with various stakeholders involved with financial inclusion and education as well as with the relevant Central Bank departments in charge of national financial inclusion initiatives. Consequently, the study presents policy recommendations aimed at improving financial inclusion in Suriname, since it is an important contributor to monetary policy and a prerequisite for financial stability.
