ADFIAP successfully concluded its 43rd Annual Meeting online on October 28 and 29, 2020 with 70 attendees from its current membership of 87 member-DFIs in 36 countries and territories. It was the first virtual annual meeting that ADFIAP held over its 44 years of existence due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic.
Themed, “DFIs and the Pandemic: Situationer and Way Forward,” the virtual gathering was a conversation among ADFIAP members on their responses during this pandemic, what they have learned, and what opportunities they see going forward.
A few common responses that DFIs undertook revolve around assisting governments in their economic stimulus packages, providing relief measures to their borrowers, and mobilizing additional funds to increase liquidity in the market. Crosscutting areas moving ahead cover digital transformation and use of innovative technologies, people up-skilling, partnership and collaboration, implementation of the SDGs and the climate agenda as well as focus on agriculture/food security, logistics, housing, infrastructure and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
