CEMCWG Technical Webinar - Consumer Protection Amidst A Pandemic: Case of COVID-19

AFI is organizing the Consumer Empowerment and Market Conduct Working Group (CEMCWG) Webinar on “Consumer Protection Amidst A Pandemic: Case of COVID-19”.  The Webinar is scheduled on 4 August 2020 at 13:00 UTC (21:00 Malaysia).

When financial service providers offer measures to consumers to cushion the effects of COVID-19, particularly through access to emergency funds, increasing limits for their credit cards or easy access to additional loans, it stringent oversight and enforcement are required to ensure that consumers are not overindebted. This webinar will include  discussions on policy and regulatory interventions, opportunities for cooperation and partnership, and the role of consumer protection amidst a pandemic.

Webinar is open to CEMCWG Members only.

Please confirm your participation by Monday, 3 August 2020, 10:00 AM (UTC).
