FCI partners with the Global SME Finance Forum 2021

The Global SME Finance Forum is the largest, most technically in-depth, and geographically diverse conference on SME financing hosted around the world each year. Last year, as COVID-19 ushered the world unexpectedly, the SME Finance Forum moved all panels online and built a virtual community. The Global SME Finance Forum 2020 attracted over 2600 registrations from 1000+ commercial banks, development finance institutions, fintech companies, and regulators from 150+ countries, which broke their record for the number of registrations. This year, SME Finance Forum aims to build an even larger community while keeping everyone safe. The virtual edition of the 2021 Global SME Finance Forum will be held over four consecutive days on October 18-21, 2021.

At FCI, we constantly support greening SME finance. Thus, we are proud to announce that we are partnering with the 2021 Global SME Finance Forum. This year, the conference will convene global thought leaders, climate finance advocators, leading experts, and practitioners in the field of SME finance to share their visions, insights, and experiences in promoting green finance for SMEs. In addition to the in-depth discussion of how green finance would influence the development of Agri-finance, supply chain finance, and tourism, the conference will also include special regional sessions focusing primarily on the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and Europe.

The 4-day conference will also use the latest technology to emulate the in-person experience, providing one-on-one networking, breakout sessions, fireside chats, and panel discussions, as well as the recognition of the 2021 Global SME Finance Awards winners. The SME Finance Forum is dedicated to offering high-standard knowledge sharing and networking opportunities for all audiences to enjoy the comfort of their own home. 

As a partner to this global event, we look forward to e-meeting you during the conference and building future partnerships together. Don’t miss out on this opportunity! Register now>
