Invited Guests, 

Ladies and Gentlemen. 

Good morning and welcome to the presentation of the financial literacy baseline survey results.  A special welcome to Mr Abel Motsomi who will be our main presenter for the day.  May I begin these opening remarks with a few words on the background of this work: 

As part of the deliverables of the Seychelles' Financial Sector Development Implementation Plan which was approved by the Government in November 2014, it was recommended that a baseline study on financial literacy be developed and conducted, following which a national strategy on financial education will be developed and implemented.
