The first GPFI Forum was held in Riviera Maya, Mexico, on October 1, 2011.  The GPFI Forum brought together over 80 participants including senior representatives from G20 and non-G20 countries, key Implementing Partners of the GPFI, representatives of the private sector, and a wide range of organizations involved in promoting financial inclusion. The GPFI Forum was the first full gathering of the Partnership since its launch at the G20 Seoul Summit in November 2010,  and was considered an opportunity to: achieve consensus on a vision for financial inclusion and the role of the GPFI in helping to fulfill it; showcase successful practices by countries already implementing financial inclusion strategies and announce commitments by those ready to follow suit; and identify practical, concrete steps to be taken on the key technical issues addressed by the GPFI Subgroups.
