The Alliance for Financial Inclusion's 2016 Global Policy Forum

  • Sheraton Fiji Resort

The Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) organizes the Global Policy Forum (GPF) as the keystone event for its membership. Each year, it is co-hosted by a different member institution in a different region of the world. 

AFI has more than 100 member institutions representing over 90 nations across the globe, making the GPF the most important and comprehensive forum for regulatory institutions with an interest in the promotion of financial inclusion policy. The Forum is focused on the development and improvement of national financial inclusion strategies and policies, and is used as a platform for senior financial regulators to exchange ideas and engage in peer-to-peer learning activities.

The 2016 GPF will be co-hosted by the Reserve Bank of Fiji (RBF). It will be held in Nadi, Fiji, on 7-9 September 2016 under the theme "Building the Pillars of Sustainable Inclusion."

The GPF mobile application and other pertinent information will be made available soon.

Ahead of the GPF, the AFI members also hold the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to hear reports on AFI’s progress, particularly the network’s impact on global dialogue, as more heads of state and international organizations are highlighting the importance of financial inclusion on the development agenda and for economic growth and stability.
