More than 300 experts will meet this week in the Tanzanian capital of Dodoma to discuss the country’s economy and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, a statement by the central bank of Tanzania said Tuesday.

The 300 experts will meet Thursday and Friday for a conference organized by the Bank of Tanzania (BoT) in collaboration with the Tanzania Bankers Association (TBA), said the statement.

The statement said the experts to the 20th Conference of Financial Institutions, which will be officiated by President Samia Suluhu Hassan, will share experiences on four related topics, namely, economic growth and sustainability during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, the scaling up private sector credit beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, accelerating digitalization for sustainable growth and digital currencies: experiences, risks and regulatory issues.

This year’s topics have been carefully selected in line with the current situation where the global economy is recovering from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic since the beginning of 2020, and digital technologies and currencies are gaining popularity across the globe.

The Conference of Financial Institutions is a forum created in 1980 under the auspices of the Bank of Tanzania for exchanging views and experiences on issues about the financial sector and economy in general. Enditem
