Governor of the CBCG meets the Minister of Education


Today, a meeting was held between the Minister of Education, Damir Šehović and Governor of the Central Bank of Montenegro, Radoje Žugić.

At the centre of the meeting was the issue of financial education of youth, primarily primary school students, secondary school students and university students, as well as vulnerable groups. Participants also discussed possible ways to intensify this process.

In this respect, participants discussed the idea of signing a Memorandum of Understanding between the Central Bank of Montenegro, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Education, which would specify the activities and responsibilities of these institutions in terms of developing and implementing a National strategy for financial education and financial inclusion.

Minister Šehović expressed his readiness to promote the idea of financial education through the existing curricula within certain teaching units, with the support of experts from the CBCG.

It was agreed to intensify cooperation between the Ministry of Education and the CBCG, with a view to implementing the agreed activities.
