The SME Finance Forum's "Fireside Chat" is a new series of one-on-one interviews with CEOs, senior executives of financial institutions and technology companies as well as financial sector regulators. The series focuses on a wide range of critical issues that matter to development and growth of MSMEs around the world. The invited guests will share their perspectives, insights and leadership experiences in their respective domains.
To launch our series, we have invited IFC's CEO, Philippe Le Houérou, as he is about to start a new chapter of his life, sharing his views on international development, the role of the private sector during the pandemic, and his legacy.
The interview was conducted by Silvia Pavoni, Economics Editor of The Banker.
