From Financial Literacy to Financial Resilience: How Has the Pandemic Impacted Consumer Behaviour?

03 Jun , 17:00–18:15
Delivering on National Development Targets
Congress Centre, conference hall B1

A major shift in the socioeconomic and technological landscape, as well as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, are both risks for financial education. At the same time, they present fresh opportunities for improving financial literacy, including through accelerated digitalization. States around the world are investing significant resources in improving financial literacy, but it is not easy to change human habits. Consumer credit burden continues to grow, the pandemic has provoked fraudulent activity, and savings have flowed into risky assets. But what if we looked at the problem from a different angle?
