Quote on behalf of Anshul
 Khurana, Co-founder of Entitled Solutions
 (a comprehensive ecosystem to enhance the well-being of blue-collar workers)
“2023 has been a very interesting year for the financial inclusion space. At one end, the recognition of the fact that low-income workers, especially those in the gig economy, are incredibly underserved, and something needs to be done urgently about it, has been more than ever. The potential of new technologies such as GenAI, and innovations like embedded finance have been widely discussed and spoken about. At the other end, consumer protection and compliance has been at the top of the agenda from a regulatory standpoint and digital financial services have seen a consolidation because of that. 2024 is expected to start at the similar note as well, and building sustainable frameworks for enabling digital financial services will be the key flavor. But once that is done, the second half of the year could see an even bigger boom in the space, with new technologies and innovations pushing for greater financial inclusion and wellbeing of low-income workers”.

Quote on behalf of Rohit Sethi, Director – ESS Global –  a study abroad consultant 

“As we approach the year’s end, I’m reminded of a powerful quote by Alvin Toffler: “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” This quote brilliantly captures the essence of modern education, emphasising the necessity of continuous adaptation and learning in our dynamic era.

In 2023, though there were ups and downs in terms of immigration policies initially, more students are now studying abroad than ever before. This is because people are realising how valuable it is to learn in other countries. They can develop important skills, see new things, and gain experience in a world that is more connected. 
Looking ahead to 2024, the study abroad/resettlement system paints a picture of optimism and progress.  Even though the world economy and politics are changing, people still want to study in other countries. This means that the future is bright for overseas education and resettlement.”
