ABOUT THE ACADEMY

As part of the European Investment Bank (EIB) Financial Sector Technical Assistance Program for West and Central Africa, EIB and MFW4A are organizing the EIB Academy – a two-day forum which will take place on 28th and 29th June 2022.

The EIB Academy is a well-established forum across Africa featuring leading industry experts. Given the success of the first virtual EIB West and Central Africa Academy in 2021, the 2022 edition will replicate this and will enable access to a large audience.

Debates, interactive presentations, and discussions will lead to reflection on contemporary themes such as: How can financial institutions and MFIs support MSMEs and help build resilience against adverse external factors? How can they promote gender financing, and adapt products, operations and management to a digitalizing and mutating world. And more!
