The National Reserve Bank of Tonga (NRBT) and the Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) Pacific Islands Regional Initiative (PIRI) are co-hosting the Pacific Islands Experts Group on Financial Inclusion Policy (EGFIP) Meeting & Consumer Protection Regulatory Training 17-20 November in Nuku’alofa, Tonga.
PIRI provides the platform for mutual learning with sustainable high-level commitments to drive and create conditions that lead to the financial empowerment of all Pacific Islands. With a vision to ensure that financial services are widely accessed by all Pacific Islanders, the initiative provides the platform for policymakers from the region to come together and discuss global financial inclusion issues, innovation and strategies and to tailor these tools to other island nations.
The EGFIP Meeting will be held from the 17th November for one and a half day followed by two and a half days of the Consumer Protection Regulatory training, concluding on the 20th November.
