The conference organized by ADB in collaboration with the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) and ADB Institute (ADBI), aims to bring together policy makers, financial sector supervisors and regulators, financial institutions, FinTech companies, academia, as well as financial sector experts to discuss opportunities and challenges in digital finance and to identify how multilateral development banks such as ADB can support in this development by financing digital technology and transformation projects.

The conference will focus on:

  • trends in digital financial inclusion-key opportunities and challenges for reaching the un-banked and under-banked;
  • customer-centricity for financial inclusion;
  • digital business models for accessing financial services;
  • supervision and regulation of digital financial services; and
  • the cost and value of digital finance.


Our speakers are a key mix of thought leaders, regulators, practitioners from NGOs, central banks, as well as professionals from financial institutions who play key roles in driving financial inclusion, and reaching the unbanked.

Invited delegates

Officials from ADB developing member countries on the recommendation by ADB regional departments will be invited to participate, as well as experts in the field.
