3rd OECD/GFLEC Global Policy Research Symposium to Advance Financial Literacy
Harnessing Financial Education to Spur Entrepreneurship and Innovation
2015 | OECD Headquarters | Paris, France
Organised by the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center (GFLEC) and the OECD/INFE, this event looked into available evidence to address cutting-edge policy issues and identified key research directions, as well as practical solutions, with a view to advancing financial literacy for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
Discussions focused on:
Financial literacy and MSMEs- What does the evidence show?- What do entrepreneurs and business owners need?- How do key stakeholders respond?
The program included a Special Governors’ session on advancing financial literacy through policy and research. The Central Bank Governors participating in this panel included Christian Noyer of France, Ignazio Visco of Italy, and Carlos da Silva Costa of Portugal (pictured above with Director Annamaria Lusardi).
The symposium was attended by high-level international researchers, officials and experts from ministries of finance and education, central banks, regulatory and supervisory authorities, officials of state governments and international organisations, NGOs, and representatives from the academic community, private and civil sectors.
