July 25, 2014 – Forum Forbes Afrique
“Banking the Unbanked: An African Model in the Making?” in Brazzaville, Congo. Ambassador Andrew Young was a featured speaker during the daylong conference along with notable leaders from around the globe.
Just like the hallmark principles of collaboration, inclusion and leadership development define the work of the Andrew J. Young Foundation, by placing financial inclusion at the heart of its 2014 program, and by bringing together private and political decision makers to focus on this very issue, the Forbes Afrique Forum ha one ambition: to help build a climate of trust and innovation and thus accelerate the continent’s development.
