A High-level Policy Conference

Of Global Relevance and Regional Importance:
the Financial Inclusion Policy Forum in Jordan

Greater access to and usage of financial services is of utmost importance to policymakers across the Arab World, as it stimulates economic growth and employment and reduces socio-economic inequalities, objectives affiliated with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

In 2015, the Central Bank of Jordan embarked on a national policy process for enhancing the financial inclusion of all segments, mainly the youth, women, refugees, and low-income people, to unleash economic and social development potentials.

The milestone event is of utmost importance for the Kingdom. It will highlight Jordan’s key financial inclusion policy areas. It will be the first event to feature a financial inclusion strategy upon the establishment of the Financial Inclusion for the Arab Region Initiative (FIARI).

The event will offer an exceptional opportunity for international peer-learning. More than 150 policy-makers, representatives from financial regulatory authorities and ministries, decision-makers, professionals, civil sector stakeholders and development partners from the Arab World and around the globe will exchange on international developments in financial inclusion.
