15 Jun , 17:00–18:15
The World Economy at a Global Turning Point
Pavilion G, conference hall G5

Financial culture is an essential part of a person's, family's and country's overall culture. In view of modern challenges, technological advancements, and the financial market’s development, it is crucial to form strong attitudes towards financial culture. This requires a sustainable system of financial literacy, continuous education and awareness initiatives, and the creation of a shared platform for dialogue and experience exchange among all stakeholders. This will make it possible to develop universal financial literacy skills, ensuring the well-being and security of citizens and the sustainability and sovereignty of the country's financial system. Special attention should be given to personal and public finance, digital financial literacy for both young people and adults, training of teachers, development of educational materials, organization of joint events for the expert community, and cooperation with CIS countries. How does the level of financial culture affect the welfare and security of citizens and the sustainability and sovereignty of the state's financial system? How do authorities understand the role of financial culture, assess its current state, and identify pathways for development? How can the formation of positive patterns of financial behaviour be stimulated? Which tools are most effective in this process? How is it planned to develop partnership between the government, public and financial institutions? What is needed to implement joint initiatives aimed at improving the financial literacy of various target groups of citizens?
