Financial education and consumer protection
NZ-OECD Global Symposium on Financial Education
12-13 October 2016 Auckland, New Zealand
Today vs Tomorrow
Forward planning from the country that sees tomorrow first
This high-level global symposium addressed the following topics:
- How we convince a generation who "want it now" to save
- How we compete with the instant gratification of "buy now, pay later"
- How we shift thinking so that today's demands and financial needs are balanced with achieving sustainable behaviour change to improve financial well-being tomorrow
- The specific needs of women and how they can be addressed
300 high-level delegates from 48 countries attended the two-day event, including officials and experts from the OECD/International Network on Financial Education (OECD/INFE), ministries of finance and education, central banks, regulatory and supervisory authorities, governmental officials, as well as international organisations, the academic community, the private sector and NGOs.
This event was organised by the New Zealand Commission for Financial Capability (CFFC) and the OECD.
