Reflecting on future challenges

For two days, these public and private sector leaders discussed various topics, such as driving digital transformation, financial inclusion strategies, adapting to the regulatory environment, updating risk control, fighting against fraud and cyber-attacks, creating green and inclusive finance, etc. The goal of these discussions was to rethink the development trajectory of Africa’s financial industry, as countries gradually prepare for their post-Covid-19 recovery. ​
