My policy idea: My policy idea takes another look at the regulation we have in place for branchless banking and looks at what is happening in the marketplace, and whether the two converge on the same platform. 

What I have found to be innovative about the program: The session on persuasion and negotiation broadened my mind to consider issues I had never thought of before.

How this program will help me create better policy and regulation: The program will help me craft better regulation because now I am coming at it from a different angle, one with a more structured approach. 

On the program's uniqueness: There are various dimensions of people coming from different countries. WE are also given the opportunity to present our policy papers and receive helpful feedback from our peers.
