DIA'FIN, High-level Dialogues on Financial Inclusion in Guinea and Africa, takes place in a context clearly shaped by Guinea's clear desire to accelerate financial inclusion.
As African governments across the continent, supported by their bilateral and multilateral partners, put in place mechanisms and innovative solutions to accelerate the financial inclusion of populations, especially women and youth.
The second edition of DIA'FIN offers a space for discussion to deepen the reflections and recommendations generated at the end of the inaugural session DIA'FIN, bringing to the forefront the key dimensions of financial inclusion in entrepreneurship women and young people in the Republic of Guinea and in the subregion. It is a moment of sharing and capitalizing on experiences and, above all, reflecting on innovative orientations in terms of multisectoral policy and governance of the issue of financial inclusion and how to finance the entrepreneurship of women and young people.
As a reminder, the synthesis of the exchanges during the three panels of DIA'FIN I was articulated around five main points:
Financial inclusion: a component of economic and social inclusion.
Increased Collaboration: Constraints to financial inclusion of different orders that can be lifted through collaboration among key players and innovation, coupled with other solutions.
Financial inclusion through SME financing: the role of banks, telephone operators and electronic money institutions.
Regulation and the role of the public authorities in a context marked by new
opportunities and the emergence of new risks.
The leverage of international cooperation to accelerate financial inclusion.
DIA'FIN has set itself the following main objectives:
Convene actors, decision-makers and stakeholders around exchange sessions in order to take stock of the progress, progress, challenges and innovation under way in the financial & digital inclusion sector.
Make available to a greater number, through public communications, relevant information on financial inclusion policies and programs at national and regional levels, as well as on actions taken by Guinea’s Central bank and financial institutions.
