G-24/AFI Policymakers’ Roundtable on Financial Inclusion at the Spring Meetings in Washington D.C.
“Realizing the Potential of Digital Financial Services & FinTech to Catalyze Women’s Financial Inclusion”
It is our pleasure to announce that the G-24 and AFI will hold a special Policymakers’ Roundtable at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank Group (WBG) Spring Meetings on 10 April, 2019, followed by a high-level Public-Private Dialogue (PPD) Roundtable on 11 April, 2019.
The G-24/AFI Roundtable provides a high-level platform for engaging developing and emerging country policymakers in discussions on globally relevant financial inclusion policy issues. This year’s Roundtable will have a specific focus on developments in DFS and FinTech, which have the greatest potential to advance women’s financial inclusion and contribute to the goal agreed by AFI members to work towards halving the financial inclusion gender gap in each of their countries.
This high-level discussion will build on the Denarau Action Plan for Gender and Women’s Financial Inclusion adopted by the AFI membership in 2016, and the Sochi Accord on FinTech for Financial Inclusion endorsed in 2018 and will assist in identifying linkages and synergies between the two action agendas.
