The 18th WSBI Postal Savings Banks Forum will take place on 20th January 2016, preceded by the 1st WSBI MENA (Middle East and North Africa) Conference on 19th January 2016. Both events are hosted by WSBI Member Al Barid Bank.
You are also invited to join the field visit to an Al Barid Bank branch on the morning of 21st January 2015.
Please note that the Postal Savings Banks Forum is an annual event gathering WSBI postal financial institution members worldwide to discuss specific postal banking topics. Given that the MENA region has particularly low financial access, WSBI would like to launch its 1st conference on financial inclusion to discuss the priority issues for the region: policy initiatives and financial inclusion strategies; model partnerships for the implementation of financial inclusion strategies and an infrastructure for innovative payment and distribution channels. Al Barid Bank is the postal bank of Morocco, which is among the largest retail banks in the country and has the largest network of distribution outlets.
