On behalf of President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), Jeroo Billimoria was invited to attend and speak in a session entitled “Financial Inclusion for Youth” at the 2012 Annual Meeting held on September 23-25 in Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers. This session highlighted the importance of youth financial inclusion and served as a launch pad for ongoing collaboration and commitment development around this topic.
CGI was created by President Clinton in 2005 in an effort to translate ideas into action. The Annual Meeting brings together heads of state, government and business leaders, scholars, and NGO directors. Participants analyze pressing global challenges, discuss the most effective solutions, and build lasting partnerships that enable them to create positive social change.
