As part of the World Alliance of International Financial Centers (WAIFC) Annual General Meeting 2020, which is hosted virtually for the first time and by the Qatar Financial Centre, you are invited to attend a focused session led by representatives of leading international financial centres, sharing holistic proposals for economic recovery in the post-COVID-19 environment.

Experts will present analysis and recommendations on how to re-engineer key areas of national economies, including Sustainable Finance, SME Finance, Regulation and FinTech and Innovation, to ignite a lasting and resilient global economic recovery. The QFC, in collaboration with Luxembourg for Finance, will share findings of their joint study on how FinTech, a sector deeply grounded on innovation, will play a pivotal role in promoting economic success.
