Dear colleagues and friends,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It gives me real pleasure to be addressing you in this opening session of the Regional Conference for Africa and the Middle East, held by Bank Al-Maghrib and the International Monetary Fund, on the digital transformation and the implementation of the Bali Fintech Agenda. I would like to start by thanking you all for your presence today, and wish a pleasant stay in Morocco to those of you attending from abroad.

I would also like to thank the International Monetary Fund, particularly the entire staff of the Monetary and Capital Market Department, for having accompanied us for months in preparing this conference. My warmest thanks go to the Department Head, Mr. Adrian Tobias, and to his deputy Mr. Ghiath Shabsigh, with whom we have worked closely.
