On the request of Bhutan Development Bank Limited (BDBL), ADFIAP organized another study mission for the Thimpu-based member-bank, this time visiting fellow-members in the Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. The study tour program will afford BDBL officers to learn and exchange knowledge on banking operations with these institutions in four countries.
The 8-man delegation first visited the ADFIAP Secretariat in Manila where they were welcomed and updated on the programs and advocacies of the Association and on financing models for SMEs by ADFIAP Secretary General Mr. Octavio B. Peralta and the Head of the ADFIAP Consulting Group, Ms Cora Conde, respectively.
