Economic and financial education
Financial and economic knowledge helps each of us make important decisions on the management of personal finances: taking a housing loan, insuring life or property, saving for retirement, etc. Hence everyone, no matter their age, residence or activities, should be knowledgeable about economics and finances.
We seek to improve the general understanding of the public about undergoing economic processes, as well as help develop the public’s skills related to proper risk evaluation and selection of financial services and products. In addition, understanding of economics and finances contributes to the stability of the financial system as a whole, more rational consumer expectations and their behaviour.
Our activities in the field of economic and financial education:
- we initiate and implement educational projects;
- we hold informative-educational seminars and lectures on issues related to economic and financial literacy, etc.;
- we organise and distribute educational publications to various target groups;
- we publish books;
- we cooperate in preparing educational textbooks;
- we actively participate in public discussions with residents on relevant issues.
