Financial Inclusion Innovation Summit (FIIS), previously known as the Pacific Microfinance Week (PMW), is a three-day series of events that will include a formal conference, workshops, field visits, seminars, and roundtables, providing the region’s most comprehensive platform on Financial Inclusion for the Pacific's financial sector stakeholders. Hosted by the Bank of Papua New Guinea, this event will bring together up to 200 participants from across the region and beyond to discuss and debate pertinent issues impacting financial inclusion in the region.

In 2017 the event is marking its 10th Anniversary as the major multi-sector gathering of financial inclusion stakeholders in the Pacific and is recognized as a landmark event, over many years covering relevant topics, issues, innovations and world-leading case studies in Financial Inclusion. It attracts participants ranging from financial sector regulators, microfinance practitioners, advocates, academic institutions, donor agencies, international financial institutions, NGOs, domestic government agencies and others.

Participating delegates will access innovations, share knowledge, network and engage in technical exchanges to further the effective, efficient and sustainable delivery of financial services within the unique constraints of the region.

At the FIIS 2017, Wealth Creation as a key enabler of prosperity in the region will be a major topic, and important dialogue on long term and sustainable wealth creation across the region will be facilitated. Other topics which will be discussed and debated at FIIS 2017 will include:
