Unlocking the Door to Financial Inclusion: The Papua New Guinea Digital Bank Identification Card Pilot Project

The Asian Development Bank, in collaboration with the Bank of Papua New Guinea (BPNG), implemented the Digital Bank ID Card pilot project to help more than 2,500 individuals in remote and rural areas secure ID through biometric capture. Other project outcomes include development of an e-Know Your Customer (e-KYC) framework and implementation of a regulatory sandbox for BPNG—the first in the Pacific region.
