Ladies and Gentlemen

1. Good morning, afternoon, or evening, wherever you may be from around the world.

2. We would have loved to welcome you all to our beautiful city of Accra for this forum but thanks to COVID-19 we have to make do with a virtual meeting.

3. The Bank of Ghana has had a long-standing relationship with AFI over the last decade and more, and we are very honoured to be co-hosting this all-important webinar. Our membership of AFI and the rich peer-learning that the Network has provided us has been extremely helpful in shaping our policies and regulation to promote financial inclusion.
