Financial Education for the promotion of social and financial inclusion

Financial Education for the promotion of social and financial inclusion

Financial Education as a powerful tool to bring the age of opportunity to everyone

Thursday, June 8, 2017 - 13:30 to 14:45
Financial Education as a tool to promote social and financial inclusion will be the main theme of the session. By fostering progress and equal opportunities, financial education has a high social value for communities and people. The Center for Financial Education and Capability, a project recently launched by BBVA in collaboration with globally renowned organisations, such as the World Bank, the Institute of International Finance, European Banking Federation, Global Financial Literacy Excellence Centre, and IDB, among others, will be presented. This global platform brings together relevant actors in this field, in order to progress towards innovative and efficient financial education solutions. In this context, the session will also address the benefits of the interaction between the financial and the digital world, leading to wider financial inclusion, particularly in emerging markets.
