Following the strategy planning meeting on January 18, 2018, with the theme “Engage and Grow”, the ADFIAP Secretariat conducted its mid-year review and planning meeting on August 10, 2018 at its Headquarters in Manila. The meeting was attended by the Secretariat’s business units – ADFIAP Consulting (AC), the Institute of Development Finance (IDF), and the ADFIAP Finance and Investment Center (AFIC) as well as its Operations Units – Membership, Knowledge Management, and Administration and Finance.
All units presented their accomplishments from the period January 1 to July 31, 2018 as well as their plans for the rest of the year. The presentations highlighted new program offerings, membership recruitment and retention approaches, adoption and development of new technology and tools for efficiency, and leveraging the Association’s vast and diverse networks around the world to enhance its visibility and reach.
The meeting also tackled the two big ticket events of the Association—the 42nd ADFIAP Annual Meeting which will be held in Muscat, Oman in February or March 2019 (dates to be set later), to be hosted by the Oman Development Bank and the upcoming International CEO Forum to be held in North Cyprus on October 23-25, 2018, to be hosted by the TRNC Development Bank.
