AT THE BEGINNING OF DIA'FIN
In May 2018, the Governor of the Central Bank of the Republic of Guinea (BCRG) was appointed Chair of the African Initiative for Financial Inclusion Policies (AfPI) for the next two years.
It is in this context, that the BCRG validated a program and proposal to host and launch the DIA'FIN, a series of dialogues on financial inclusion in Guinea and Africa, aiming to invite key actors and stakeholders and increase public communications on the issue of accelerating financial inclusion of populations.
The inaugural session of the DIA`FIN, organized and hosted by the BCRG, was held on May 3, 2019, with the support of technical and financial partners, in the capital of Conakry, through the convening of over a hundred distinguished panelists and delegates such as high level government representatives, financial institutions directors, national & international agencies representatives, central banks representatives from countries of the West Africa sub-region, entrepreneurs and SMEs, civil society actors and the media.
