Omar Ben Yedder, the Group Publisher and Managing Director of IC Publications Group, which publishes African Banker Magazine, said:
“We have received a record amount of entries this year. The banking industry is being disrupted by technology and one could sense that the sector is embracing this technology to develop solutions that will truly benefit the real economy. Financial inclusion lies at the heart of formalising our industries and fintech is playing a role in bringing finance to the masses. ”
The awards are held under the patronage of the African Development Bank and are sponsored by The African Guarantee Fund and The Bank of Industry. The Gala Dinner and Awards presentation will take place at the Gaviota, by the Sofitel Sipopo, Malabo.
