Name: North Africa Future Banking Forum 2017 

Date: October 24 - October 25

Location: Cairo, Egypt



Egypt’s current financial inclusion is low with an estimated 14% of Egyptian adults having bank accounts. Mobile banking is expected to enhance deposit growth as banks’ penetration of the bankable population deepens.


With more than 85% of the country’s population lacking access to formal banking products and a mobile penetration rate exceeding 100%, processing payments can be the first entry point for the unbanked to engage with the banking system. It is estimated that about 94 % of financial transactions in Egypt are done using cash. And only about 35 % of the 82 million Egyptians have access to a bank account.


The North Africa Future Banking Forum (24 - 25 October 2017, Cairo, Egypt) will focus on the key themes shaping the future of the region through a number of engaging sessions with several networking opportunities with industry professionals, leaders & experts.
