Hence research conferences are also a way of developing well-grounded economic science in Ukraine, since better economic education and understanding of economic processes translate into better quality and understanding of the central bank’s decisions among the general public."

"Joint actions of our central banks focus on improving the quality of financial education being one of the strategic areas of our cooperation. At present, one of the elements of financial inclusion is financial education. The NBP, as well as the NBU traditionally engages in financial education. By supporting the events and projects like this one we strive to foster economic development and financial research in the region."

Rector of the Banking University Anzhela Kuznietsova,


"We are proud to note that longstanding effective cooperation between universities, the NBU, and the NBP assists in rearing a new generation of economic analysts. I hope that the Conference attendees will retain their kin interest in economic processes occurring in the country and the Conference participants have a chance to receive offers to continue working with the regulators."


At the event the representatives of Polish and Ukrainian central banks, students and young researches from Ukrainian and Polish education institutions will present their research. Working languages are Ukrainian and English.
