This year’s conference was attended by more than 160 delegates. We had the pleasure and honor to welcome the Crown Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg, who did actively participate in the morning sessions. Minister Marie-Josée Jacobs, Minister for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs covered in her speech some very interesting ideas regarding Microfinance as a development tool.
The conference focused on the perspectives and critical challenges of the microfinance industry. Social performance of the MIVs and the need for an increased transparency in this sector were other heavily debated topics.
