2018 AFI Global Policy Forum (GPF)


Innovation. Inclusion. Impact


Bank of Russia and the Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) are pleased to announce that the 2018 AFI Global Policy Forum (GPF) will be held from 5-7 September 2018 in Sochi, Russia – the first in the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region.

Over the past decade, GPFs have supported the environment for historic financial inclusion policy initiatives and declarations that have made a powerful impact on the global quest to bring the world’s 2 billion unbanked into the formal financial system.



The 2018 GPF will provide a platform to showcase the latest innovations in technology, progress made in financial inclusion and its impact in paving the way for greater financial access for the unbanked population, particularly the rural poor and women. This year also marks the 10th-year anniversary of both the GPF and AFI. 


Formal invitations together with logistical information will be shared soon. Visit www.afi-global.org/gpf for more updates.

We look forward to seeing you in Sochi!
