Description
The Island Finance Forum 2021 brings together senior financiers, development partners and regulators to share and exchange expertise on sustainable and inclusive financial structures in island communities. It aims to highlight the unique financial challenges faced by global island communities and the solutions for sustainable economic recovery and inclusive growth in a post-pandemic world.

It will be accessible to attendees from across the globe in a variety of interactive sessions, including networking opportunities to meet and exchange ideas face to face or in small groups.
