Savings, Rural Savings, Papua New Guinea


A review of the article "Mobilizing Rural Savings in Papua New Guinea: Myths, Realities and Needed Policy Reforms" is imperative considering the efforts of the Federal Government and monetary authorities, especially the Central Bank of Nigeria to mobilize rural savings in Nigeria. This is evidenced by the establishment of the Nigerian Agricultural and Cooperative Bank ( 1973), the Agricultural Credit Guarantee Scheme ( 1977), the Central Bank of Nigeria Rural Banking Programme (1977), the Peoples Bank (1990) and the Community Bank (1990) nationwide.
