Despite the retaliation towards globalization, it is more prudent to address its negative effects. The Straits Times quoted Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong during APEC 2016. He said the key to moving forward is to “focus on supporting small businesses, digital trade, and services.” That way, the advantages of globalization will be spread more evenly and to more people. The answer is to put emphasis on financial inclusion – rather than a hindrance, globalization should be a catalyst for greater inclusivity, especially for SMEs. In tandem with proposed government efforts, the rise of FinTech platforms can also support financial inclusion.
