Paris, 8 July 2011
In association with the French Treasury and with the support of the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC), the Banque de France organised a workshop on microfinance at the Palais du Luxembourg (home to the French Senate) on 8 July 2011. The event was organised as part of France’s presidency of the G20 until November 2011. The only central bank in the European Union to possess an observatory dedicated to microfinance, the Banque de France decided to entrust the Observatory with the organisation of this workshop. The objective was notably to extend and pursue the work already commenced by the GPFI – Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion – created by the G20 at the Seoul summit in December 2010.
The day was structured around four round-tables that were rich in debates animated by approximately forty guest speakers from all over the world and in the presence of Muhammad Yunus, Nobel peace prize laureate, and keynote speaker at the event..
