With 300+ delegates and 49 industry-leading speakers, the 3rd East African Banking & Microfinance Forum provided a vital platform for all government stakeholders and private sector organisations to engage on the region’s growth strategy, trends and policy developments, post-pandemic recovery and the adoption of fintech and digitisation in the African banking sector.
