AFI opens bidding process for the 2018 Global Policy Forum

AFI has officially opened the process for its members to bid on becoming the host of the 2018 Global Policy Forum. As a GPF host, AFI members are able to position their country and institution in the global arena and demonstrate commitment as a financial inclusion leader, while increasing awareness and commitment for national financial inclusion initiatives. Hosts also gain exposure within the AFI Network and receive a unique opportunity to help shape the financial inclusion agenda. While the GPF is underway, a host country becomes the international capital of financial inclusion. 

The AFI Global Policy Forum has quickly established itself as the premier event for senior financial policymakers and regulators to share ideas, explore innovations and highlight financial inclusion success stories from across the globe. Each year the event has been held in a different member country providing a unique insight into new regions and new challenges for policymakers. 

The successful bid will be announced at the conclusion of the 2017 Global Policy Forum which will take place in Egypt, this September. 

For more information on becoming a GPF host, please refer to the attached document on ‘Hosting Requirements’. 

Interested AFI members should fill the attached “GPF Hosting Application Form” and return it to by 01 June 2017.
