The winning bank is the one that has succeeded in reaching out to new customers, promoting financial inclusion by bringing the unbanked into the banking space, and has made use of new technologies, whilst all the time contributing to a stronger financial sector. The winning bank has demonstrated strong credentials across its activities and played an active role in driving economic growth in the region.
