The young people starting with the age of 16, who want to integrate into the modern world of the financial system, can take part in an event entitled “Road of Money” that is staged by the National Bank of Moldova (NBM) in partnership with the Independent Think Tank “Expert-Grup” during October 29-30, in connection with the World Savings Day, IPN reports.
In a press release, the NBM says that this year the participants will make a virtual trip during which they will learn many things about the “road of money” to real economy, cashless payment instruments and curiosities about their use in the Republic of Moldova and abroad. They will also find out how the money is put into circulation and what safety elements the national currency has. The young people, together with the organizers of the event, will reflect on the national financial system and will discuss the saving and loan instruments.
The participants will be able to recapitulate their knowledge as the sessions that will be held during the two days will end with an assessment contest and the winners will be awarded sets of coins.
Those who want to take part in the given financial education activities can submit applications by filling out a form until October 28, 2020, 6pm. The form is available on https://bit.ly/3lGW5X3.
“Give Sense to Money” is a financial education project launched by the NBM and “Expert-Grup” last March to enrich knowledge of the main financial products and concepts among young people so that these could take correct decisions as regards the management of own incomes when facing situations with a financial impact.
