Webinar: Impact of the COVID-19 Crisis on the African Financial Sector

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Making Finance Work for Africa (MFW4A) is hosting a webinar on the impact of current health crisis on the African financial sector. The session will discuss in forward-looking terms how ongoing market turmoil and trade disruptions due to concerns about the impact of the coronavirus on the global economy will affect the African financial sector.

Given the significance of current events and the possibility of economic contagion, African policymakers and private sector’s stakeholders are invited to discuss ongoing and/or expected fallout of the Covid19 outbreak on the African financial sector.

Discussants will also debate immediate policy responses to further strengthen the resilience of the African financial systems, with a focus on:

– Trade finance,

– Capital markets, and

– Banking sector.

The session will be moderated by Hugues Kamewe Tsafack, Financial Sector Advisor within the MFW4A team.

Please register early, due to limited number of participants.
