From 10 to 11 May 2012, the 23rd World Conference of the World Savings Banks Institute (WSBI) gathered professionals from the financial, economic, social and political scene as well as civil society representatives from all over the world in Marrakech, Marocco. ERSTE Foundation was invited to present its model of cooperation with its bank – the Erste Group – and the specific projects that resulted from this cooperation such as Zweite Sparkasse and the micro finance and social entrepreneurship projects established under the initiative good.bee.

The WSBI World Conference, taking place every three years, offers a forum for savings and retail bank representatives to share their perspectives on how best to put clients at the centre of the banking relationships and highlight the benefits of the savings and retail banking model to achieve responsible, competitive and stable retail banking markets.
