We are delighted to announce that the 25th edition of the SWIFT African Regional Conference will take place in Kigali, Rwanda on 20-22 June 2018.

Join us for this special edition of ARC, which will bring together more than 500 leading financial service executives from over 40 countries across Africa. Meet and engage with your peers from financial institutions,  market infrastructures, international corporations and technology partners, and play a role in shaping the future of Africa’s financial services.

East Africa is a dynamic and varied region that contains some of the largest and highest growth economies in Africa. With so much financial sector development taking place in the region, we are excited to bring the 25th anniversary edition of ARC to Kigali, Rwanda, a country whose financial sector has been growing significantly year-on-year. 

This year’s agenda will highlight innovation, technology and the future of financial services. Sessions will look at key trends in the region, including the next generation of payments, financial crime compliance and the challenge of de-risking, and the ongoing fight against cybercrime.

Join us at ARC on 20-22 June for three days of engaging discussions and high level networking. See you in Kigali!
