ARC 2018, Rwanda


SWIFT’s 25th African Regional Conference (ARC) was the largest ARC yet, gathering more than 530 participants from 53 countries in Kigali, Rwanda, to talk about the future of Africa’s financial services sector.

Discussions over three days focused on the role of technology in driving growth in Africa, transforming the continent’s economies, and addressing some of the critical challenges facing Africa’s financial sector including cybercrime and financial crime compliance.

SWIFT also published a white paper on African Transaction flows. Using SWIFT data, we mapped trade flows against financial flows, revealing a unique perspective on Africa’s transaction patterns. We look at how transaction banking has changed in Africa over the last five years, and identify potential drivers for change and their impact on banks doing business in Africa.

Work sessions

As always, ARC will feature a series of thematic workshops and work sessions. Our team of experts will be available at the event to deliver interactive demos and training on SWIFT products and services.
