G20 Roundtable on Innovations In Agricultural Finance

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

On behalf of the Turkish G20 Presidency and the Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion, we invite you to join us at G20 Roundtable on Innovations in Agricultural Finance to be held in Belek, Antalya on 9 September 2015.

The agricultural sector is essential for food security, job creation and overall economic growth around the world, yet productivity levels in developing countries remain low. While challenges for agricultural finance posed by high operating and monitoring costs persist, a combination of technological advances, new delivery channels and an improved understanding of smallholders’ needs offer an unprecedented opportunity to overcome these challenges and deliver innovative solutions. The first G20 Roundtable on Innovations in Agricultural Finance is aiming at uncovering new ways to finance the agricultural sector in developing countries. Framed by high level panels with policy makers and private sector representatives from G20 and non-G20 countries, innovative approaches in the key areas of agricultural finance will be discussed by experts representing governments, financial service providers, investors, private sector companies, development organizations, and researchers.

Registration: The last day to register is Friday, September 4 2015.
