Michael Tarazi and Nadine Chehade of CGAP’s Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regional team are hosting a live web chat on financial inclusion in the Arab world tomorrow. The chat will be held from 10:30 to 11:00 AM EST, wherein Michael and Nadine will take participants’ live questions.

After the Arab Spring uprisings of 2011, 2012 was a year of advancing new governments that promote inclusion. Tomorrow’s chat is an opportunity to discuss the financial inclusion progress that was made in 2012 and what to expect in 2013. Michael and Nadine, along with Mayada El-Zoghbi, wrote a post on this topic that ran on the CGAP Blog last week. To check out the post, click here.
