Embrace the digital revolution! Learn about the latest financial innovations and their potential contribution to achieving sustainable development.
Join us and engage with the leading FinTech innovators, regulators, experts, and practitioners from the financial sector to grasp opportunities of the digital age!
The global pandemic has slowed down development and has created numerous social and economic challenges for all of us. New digital connection platforms and constant virtual environment, including online learning could play a key role to tackle these challenges. However, not everyone is able to easily adopt to the new norm and unfortunately many have been losing the opportunity to access training and education.
At UNITAR we feel an urgent need to strengthen our efforts in all fronts to help reduce digital inequalities and to facilitate financial inclusion through training. Therefore, UNITAR launches the new comprehensive Digital Finance Initiative with the aim of supporting countries and organizations to harness digital technologies and to build the essential digital and financial knowledge and skills of their people.
World Creativity and Innovation Day, 21st of April serves as our motivation to launch the Digital Finance Initiative with a one-day virtual conference which aims at discussing the future of finance in the context of the latest FinTech innovations, sharing best practices of digitalizing monetary policy and currencies from the regulatory perspective, and exploring the potential of digital innovations in accelerating sustainable development. UNITAR is creating a multi-stakeholder platform and inviting FinTech innovators, government representatives, regulatory officials, financial practitioners, development experts and all change agents to join us on the 21st of April and participate in the discussions about the most urgent digital financial issues.
