There was much to celebrate as members of the alliance gathered at the 2016 Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) Global Policy Forum (GPF) in Nadi, Fiji.
Co-hosted by the Reserve Bank of Fiji, the eighth annual GPF was the first to be held since AFI became a fully independent organization. It was also the largest GPF ever held, attracting over 500 senior financial inclusion policymakers, regulators and leaders from the AFI network and beyond.
The 2016 GPF also marked the fifth anniversary of the Maya Declaration, with members making new and renewed commitments to amplify and accelerate financial inclusion in their countries. Six additional members made commitments for the first time, bringing the total number of members with Maya Declaration commitments to 62.
