ECAPI is the primary platform for AFI member institutions in the EECA region to support and develop their financial inclusion policy and regulatory frameworks and to coordinate regional peer learning efforts — aiming to resolve regional challenges and elevate the voice of the EECA region on key financial inclusion policy issues.

In the context of implementing the ECAPI deliverables, the Experts Group on Financial Inclusion Policy (EGFIP) will meet virtually from the 1 - 3 June 2020. The EGFIP comprises of technical staff from AFI member institutions in EECA region who are nominated as primary or alternate members and are directly involved in the technical work of financial inclusion. As a part of the agenda, we will also specifically cover the implications of COVID-19 for the EECA region and explore peer learning opportunities to address specific challenges in responding to the pandemic.

Additionally, meeting will conduct a Developed - Developing Country dialogue on the topic of cybersecurity followed by member training on digital financial literacy. Officials who have been closely involved in the work related to regulations on DFS with a focus on cybersecurity and financial literacy would benefit most from this training.
