The WSBI World Congress is a policy-focused event held on a triennial basis. Partici​pants include association members, policymakers and stakeholders. The next World Congress of Savings & Retail Banks​ took place in Paris on ​7 & 8 of July 2022.


Many speakers and panellists from throughout the world will attend the 25th WSBI World Congress and share their experience and views on globalisation, financial inclusion and the role played by savings and retail banks in both​. The event provides a forum to hear about how those banks build their infrastructure to support payments, make credit decisions, provide financial advice work while bringing the benefits of globalisation to people on the ground.

The wait is finally over. Four years after New Delhi, the World Savings Banks Institute community will get together again in Paris, France, on 7-8 July.
The ‘City of Light’ will welcome high-level participants from the WSBI and ESBG vibrant member community, decision-makers, representatives of the academic and business world, and other relevant stakeholders. It will be a unique networking event, focusing on the global responsibility of regionally rooted saving and retail banks.

Special focus will also be given to WSBI’s Scale2Save programme for financial inclusion, a unique multi-layer initiative aiming to highlight the importance of small-balance savings and to contribute to the financial resilience of customers in Africa.

A day earlier, on 6 July, the WSBI statutory meetings will also take place.

Stay tuned for more detailed information about keynote speakers, the programme, registration information, fees, partnership and sponsorship opportunities.
