2019 AFI GLOBAL POLICY FORUM
Using Technology for Inclusion of Women and Youth
We are looking forward to advancing the financial inclusion objectives of the AFI community and we are excited to announce that the National Bank of Rwanda (NBR) and the Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) will host the 2019 AFI Global Policy Forum (GPF) from 11-13 September 2019 in Kigali, Rwanda.
Hailed for its gender equality policies and equal participation of women in all spheres of life, the 2019 GPF aims to showcase the experience of Rwanda and highlight how the use of technology will bring progress in financial inclusion of the most vulnerable groups, especially women and youth.
Since the adoption of the Denarau Action Plan (DAP) at the 2016 GPF, AFI members have pledged to cut the gender gap in half by 2021 within their respective jurisdictions. The 2019 GPF is an occasion to take stock of the progress made and set out steps ahead to reach the goal of halving the financial inclusion gender gap. We will also share and discuss how AFI members are developing and implementing youth-specific financial inclusion policies, as well as what are the commitments we need to make as a global policy leadership alliance to make financial inclusion related services and products more accessible to youth.
Official invitations and a logistics note providing all necessary details will be sent out prior to the event. In the meantime, we would be most grateful if you could save these dates.
The National Bank of Rwanda and AFI look forward to welcoming you to Remarkable Rwanda in September 2019.
