Larry Reed to live tweet at the AFI Global Policy Forum

Larry Reed, director of the Microcredit Summit Campaign, is attending the 2013 AFI Global Policy Forum, hosted by the Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) and the Bank Negara Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on September 10-12.

Central banks and other policy making bodies in developing countries will engage in dialogue to increase access to financial services guided by the theme “Driving policies for optimal impact.” AFI members will work together to take the financial inclusion agenda forward, and delegates at our own 2013 Partnerships against Poverty Summit (October 9-11 in Manila) will carry the baton forward, considering how partnerships hold enormous potential for catalyzing the next great wave of movement out of severe poverty.

Reed will live tweet from Malaysia during the sessions that will be available on live streaming video to share his own thoughts on the dialogue. See below for a schedule and click here to watch. Ask Larry what’s happening or about the 2013 Summit this October in the Philippines by tweeting @MicroCredSummit in the timeline below.
