​​​​BRUSSELS, 20 July 2016 – ​This week WSBI highlights its work at regional level in Africa. Representing 43 financial institutions from 28 countries, the WSBI Africa Regional Group brings together members in the region to keep close exchange on specific issues and to promote the exchange of best practices and create business cooperation opportunities.​

Group members meet at least once a year at annual regional group meetings. Those meetings serve as a platform for exchange of experiences among members and also provide potential members or other interested international or regional organizations to appreciate what savings banks and the WSBI stand for.

​Cooperation between WSBI members in the African Regional Group ranges from contact building and exchanges of information to the development of concrete business opportunities, at bilateral or multilateral level. For example, members host training workshops for other members, delivered by WSBI[links to training page], sign business cooperation memoranda of understanding, exchange expertise and enter into reciprocal business partnerships. Training and sharing opportunities often fall alongside regional group meetings.
