Financial inclusion is of major concern to policymakers in the Arab World.

The Financial Inclusion and Employment in the Arab Region Conference

November 10-11th, 2015

Dead Sea, Jordan

Financial inclusion is of major concern to policymakers in the Arab World as it stimulates economic growth and employment generation and increases financial sector stability.

The G7 Deauville Partnership reaffirmed this by launching in April 2015 the Action Plan for Financial Inclusion in the Middle East and North Africa region.

Following up on this, the Central Bank of Jordan, the Arab Monetary Fund, and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH are pleased to announce the conference on Financial Inclusion and Employment in the Arab Region.
