Cen­tral Bank re­brands web­site

Lesotho Times - - Business - Mamohlakola Le­tuka

THE Cen­tral Bank of Lesotho (CBL) this week launched a re­branded in­ter­ac­tive web­site to fa­cil­i­tate com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween the bank and its strate­gic stake­hold­ers on is­sues of mu­tual in­ter­est.

CBL Gov­er­nor, Retšelisit­soe Mat­lanyane ( pic­tured), de­scribed the im­proved web­site as a “mile­stone” which would en­able stake­hold­ers to learn about the bank, its vi­sion, mis­sion, ob­jec­tives as well as the ex­e­cu­tion of its statu­tory man­date.

“The new web­site will be a source of up-to-date in­for­ma­tion to our stake­hold­ers, re­searchers and the pub­lic” Dr Mat­lanyane said at the Le­hakoe Recre­ational Club in Maseru.

Dr Mat­lanyane said that the new web­site was de­vel­oped with ease of ac­cess and us­abil­ity in mind and the in­for­ma­tion was pack­aged in line with the core func­tions of the bank.

“The new web­site re­flects our re­freshed brand and cor­po­rate iden­tity in this age where a web­site re­flects on a life of an in­sti­tu­tion.”

The web­site is among sev­eral ini­tia­tives the bank is car­ry­ing out to ac­tu­alise its 2015-2019 strate­gic plan.

The plan en­tails adap­tion to chang­ing stake­holder needs, ef­fec­tive use of tech­nol­ogy, en­gen­der­ing a cul­ture of in­no­va­tion and moderni­sa­tion in ser­vice de­liv­ery.

Dr Mat­lanyane fur­thered that some of the rel­e­vant ma­te­rial for the on­go­ing im­ple­men­ta­tion of the fi­nan­cial ed­u­ca­tion and Lit­er­acy Project is avail­able on the new web­site.

For his part, CBL Chief Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Of­fi­cer, Ephraim More­mo­holo, said the web­site is user friendly and eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble to the pub­lic.

“We will be the first to in­form the pop­u­la­tion of re­cent de­vel­op­ments in the bank rather than ex­pect the pub­lic to be in­formed by other par­ties through so­cial me­dia,” Mr More­mo­holo said.

He said the new web­site had clear sec­tions on leg­is­la­tion and reg­u­la­tions thus sav­ing time for the searcher.

He said that un­like the pre­vi­ous one, the web­site also pro­vided sta­bil­ity core func­tion of mon­i­tor­ing the fi­nan­cial sys­tem.
