Leading the Recovery at the International CEO Forum Manila

The global economy, after experiencing a steady meltdown in the past year, is starting to have glimpses of a slow recovery and promises of more sustainability and stability in the following years.

Carried by its theme “Leading the Recovery: Environmental, Social, and Governance Imperatives for DFIs,” the forum discussed development fund sources, corporate governance, climate change adaptation and mitigation, migrant workers remittances, and financial inclusion, as well as the catalytic role of DFIs in their respective economies.

Two separate seminars were also conducted for each day of the forum, the first one about Islamic banking and finance, entitled “Banking without Interest,” which was jointly sponsored by the ADFIAP, MNY Consulting Sdn Bhd Malaysia, and Gov. Jose B. Fernandez, Jr. of the Center Banking and Finance of the Asian Institute of Management.

The second seminar was a training workshop on the evaluation and management of environmental and social risks in lending and investment practices. This whole-day lecture was organized by the ADFIAP in cooperation with the United Nations Environment Program Finance Initiative.

The ABS-CBN News Channel, Business World, and Writers Edge Inc. were the media partners for this two-day forum.
