- Story Text:Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and a United Nations advisor for Inclusive Finance, met with Vietnamese officials in Hanoi on Wednesday (May 31) to promote affordable access to financial services by the Vietnamese people.
Queen Maxima, who is on a three-day visit in Vietnam in her capacity as the U.N. Secretary-General's Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development, held talks with Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang and Governor of State Bank Le Minh Hung on the state of inclusive financing in Vietnam.
Before meeting her husband King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, Argentinian-born Maxima studied Economics for her degree and pursued a high-flying career in finance. As an adviser to the United Nations she campaigns for the poor to have better access to financial services.
Over 75 per cent of people living in the rural areas of Vietnam do not have access to financial services which would enable them to apply for loans and seek investments into farming and modern production technologies.
