The MED Confederation, the alliance of Euro-Mediterranean institutions and organisations promoting socioeconomic cooperation in the Mediterranean region, has been encouraging research and dialogue in order to promote awareness, best practices, and innovative initiatives to address the issue of financial inclusion as one of the main pillars of the development agenda in the Mediterranean region.
Following two previous webinars dedicated respectively to the impact of the COVID-19 on financial inclusion and youth financial inclusion in the Mediterranean, the alliance is organising a third edition untitled “Scaling Up Financial Inclusion of MSMEs for a Sustainable Recovery in the Mediterranean: Prospects and Challenges.” The final objective of the event is to draw a set of policy recommendations based on lessons learnt and successful experiences, that can contribute to enlighten policy-making processes in the post-COVID-19 context.
This event will provide a space for dialogue where experts and practitioners from institutions and organisations across the Mediterranean region and beyond will debate the prospects and challenges for enhancing the financial inclusion of Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) as the fundamental condition to spur the post-COVID-19 recovery in the Mediterranean region.
Jessica Alfaro, our financial sector specialist at the SME Finance Forum, will participate in the main panel discussion together with representatives of Société nationale de garantie et de financement de l’entreprise (SNGFE) – Morocco, Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC - Tunisia) and Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP).
