Financial and economic literacy

The soundness of the economy depends largely on the financial health of the population. The economic and financial literacy of the public is primarily the role of the state and its education system. Nevertheless, the Czech National Bank also contributes to this objective thanks to its independence and vital know-how. It does so in order to have on its side people who are familiar with financial and economic matters, as this helps it fulfil its statutory duties and limits potential unfair practices in the financial market. The CNB’s projects to promote financial and economic literacy are targeted mainly at older primary school pupils, secondary school pupils and the general public. The CNB’s Visitor Centre is its biggest endeavour in this area to date.
