9th Financial Expert Day of the Strategic Partners AFC and ADG

For the ninth time, AFC Agriculture and Finance Consultants and ADG-International organized the Financial Expert Day (FED) on Montabaur castle, the headquarters of ADG, on January 9th and 10th 2017.

The event has become an integral part of AFC’s and ADG’s activities to exchange with consultants active in the field of financial sector development. The number of almost 40 participants shows the high interests in and appreciation of such an annual meeting. Jointly with AFC’s /ADG’s financial sector in-house staff long term experts from currently implemented project, associated consultants and those interested in a future cooperation had the unique possibility to exchange best practices and knowledge on “Reflecting Trends & Achieving Impact in Financial Sector Development Projects”, the title of the this year’s event.

At the beginning of the 9th FED the current project portfolio of AFC and ADG-International was compared to the most recent trends in financial sector development. The following discussion was aiming to determine by what extend we can cover them. In a next step, the group described the most crucial steps and the most critical success factors of project implementation. During the last session of the 9th FED specialists gave insight into different ways of carrying out the monitoring and evaluation of a projects impact.

We are already looking forward to welcome interested experts and consultants to next years’ 10th Financial Expert Day on the 8th/9th of January 2018

However this year’s biggest highlight happened right after the 9th FED:

AFC Agriculture and Finance Consulting and ADG-International celebrated 10 years of successful strategic partnership. In a beautiful and festive setting with partners, Mr. Johannes Buschmeier (Managing Director AFC) and Mr. Rüdiger Meister (Head of Department ADG International) gave an outlook to the next 10 years of partnership. Representatives from different donor organisations, such as EIB, KfW or GIZ, also gave their view on the most recent and to be expected developments in the sector of financial systems development. Manfred Leuchter, a renowned accordion player, added some flavour to the setting by playing a few of his beautiful music that is influenced by his experiences gained all over the world. At the end everyone had the chance to exchange with each other in a relaxed atmosphere.
