Learn­ing to save

Southasia - - BRIEFINGS -

As a part of its scheme to en­cour­age sav­ings, the cen­tral bank of Bhutan has asked banks and fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions in the coun­try to “adopt schools and ap­point ded­i­cated staff to deal with stu­dents and of­fer them swift ser­vices”. The deputy gover­nor of the Bhutan Royal Mon­e­tary Author­ity has said that it has be­come nec­es­sary to en­cour­age sav­ings and to teach pru­dent fi­nan­cial man­age­ment to stu­dents. Terming them the “fu­ture eco­nomic ac­tors”, he said that their fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions will dic­tate the fu­ture of world eco­nom­ics.

The cen­tral bank of Bhutan has also pub­lished 5,000 comic books for pri­mary schools in ad­di­tion to pro­duc­ing au­dio-vis­ual ma­te­ri­als on coun­ter­feit cur­rency notes as a part of its fi­nan­cial lit­er­acy pro­gram.
