The Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) Global Policy Forum (GPF) is organized by AFI as the keystone event for its membership. Each year it is co-hosted by a different member institution in a different region of the world. AFI has more than 100 member institutions from more than 89 nations making the GPF the most important and comprehensive forum for regulatory institutions with an interest in promoting financial inclusion policy. The Forum is focused on developing and improving national financial inclusion strategies and policies, and is used as a platform for senior financial regulators to exchange ideas as well as engage in peer-to-peer learning activities. The AFI Global Policy Forum has been recognized by leading international financial development organizations and individuals as an important part of the global dialogue on financial inclusion. Participation in the GPF has become a part of the standard dialogue from leaders of regulatory institutions and is often used as an example of the positive efforts taking place to solve the problem of the unbanked. For example, at the 6th Annual Microfinance Conference and Entrepreneurship Awards, the Central Bank of Nigerias (CBN) Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, spoke of his institutions progress, noting the CBN had "...made a commitment at the GPF 2011 held in Mexico to reduce Nigerias financial exclusion rate from 46.3 to 20 per cent by 2020."
