I am delighted to officiate at this official launch of the 2019 World Savings Day under the theme: 'Be Money Smart: Savings Give Life a Lift!'. As you may be aware, the World Savings Day is a global event celebrated to promote awareness on the importance of savings. In line with the National Strategy on Financial Education of 2012, Zambia has observed the World Savings Day since 2014.

Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen, this year's World Savings Day commemoration presents yet another opportunity for consumers to learn about financial products as well as how to select and assess appropriate financial products to maximise their usage for key life events.
