"Several Indonesians still do not have access to banks or financial services and are mostly in rural areas, especially those working in the agricultural sector," she pointed out.

Hence, the government should solve the problems.

This particularly holds significance in the era of technology where technological developments play an important role.

Queen Maxima held a discussion with President Widodo on the simplification of the system to encourage financial inclusion.

The Queen also expressed readiness to continue working with governments and the private sectors as well as banking and non-financial institutions in an attempt to advance financial inclusion across Indonesia.
