WSBI to participate in FI2020 Week

WSBI to participate in FI2020 Week
Date: 03/11/2015 - 03/11/2015
Location: Brussels

​The World Savings and Retail Banking Institute (WSBI) will be hosting an FI2020 Week event, which will be part of a week of global conversation exploring the most important steps to achieving full financial inclusion. Partners from around the world are participating in order to advance financial inclusion. Full financial inclusion means that everyone who can use them has access to a full suite of quality financial services, provided at affordable prices, in a convenient manner, with respect and dignity. Within this vision, financial services are delivered by a range of providers, in a stable, competitive market to financially capable clients.

FI2020 Week will be held from November 2-6, 2015. Overall coordination is led by the Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion (CFI), an action-oriented think tank working toward full global financial inclusion and based in Washington, DC. FI2020 Week aims to build momentum around addressing the most significant gaps in financial inclusion through a week of global conversation.

The event will occur on Tuesday 3 November 2015 from 2:30 to 4 pm CET in cooperation with Postbank Uganda (PBU), Tanzania Postal Bank (TPB) and Kenya Post Office Savings Bank (KPOSB). The WSBI, as a supporting partner of the goal of Universal Financial Access (UFA) will contribute with an interactive conversation (webinar) that will be focused on the lessons drawn from a six year programme (2009 – 2015) carried out with 12 WSBI member banks and aimed at creating usable savings services in the hands of the poor.
