Salutations

It is my pleasure to welcome you to this event marking the Global Money Week in the function of financial education, with our main affiliates, the Ministry of Education, the World Bank, the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the European Fund for South East Europe, who I would like to take this opportunity to thank for the unreserved support to advance developments in the financial sector in Kosovo in general and financial education in particular.

This year, Global Money Week is especially important for two reasons:

Firstly, for the fact that with the activities that we will organize this week, we have brought the Republic of Kosovo to the attention of the international arena, where the activities that we will organize this week can be followed internationally through "live streams" from central banks, regulators and international organizations dealing with financial education issues;

Secondly, for the fact already announced by the CBK that 2019 will be the year of consumer protection and the activities that we will organize in the field of financial education will be in the function of consumer protection.
