Dear Sir/ Madam,
The ADFIAP’s Institute of Development Finance (IDF) will conduct a Study Tour Program on Vietnamese Microfinance Enterprise and Community Development in Vietnam on May 27-31, 2014. The program aims to enhance the participants’ knowledge and understanding of microfinance enterprise and community development in Vietnam. It has been structured to give a more relevant and practical perspective on MSME financing and development by incorporating different avenues of learning through lectures, visits to policy-makers, institutional visits to conduits of MSME funds, project visits and sharing of experiences by participants coming from different countries in the Asia-Pacific region leading to a fuller understanding of the significant roles that financial institutions play in the development not only of Vietnam’s economy and poverty alleviation effort but also the development of MSME sector in their respective countries.
Target participants are officers and managers of banks, financial institutions, policy/regulatory agencies, consulting firms, private and public corporations, and other NGOs engaged in MSME development.
Participation fee is US$1,599 (US$1,899 for non-ADFIAP members) which is inclusive of lunch and refreshments during the program, learning materials, program-related trips, and certificate of attendance. Airfare and hotel accommodation will be for the account of the participant and/or the participating institution.
Regretfully, ADFIAP cannot provide financial assistance for participants since this study program is not covered by any grant. Program slots are limited, and participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please indicate your interest by filling up the Reply Slip, below, and return to us on or before April 15, 2014.
Thank you and warm regards,
