Hosting 2016 OECD Summit
For the first time New Zealand will be hosting the high profile OECD International Network on Financial Education summit, in Auckland.
Senior delegates will be coming from around the world to identify innovative policies and strategies around financial education and consumer protection, with the goal of improving people’s financial wellbeing.
The event will provide a unique opportunity for Exchange members to talk to central bankers, regulators, academics and government officials.
The four-day summit is made up of two days of closed sessions for members only, followed by a high-level global symposium and surrounding events, which will also be open to representatives of the NZ financial services sector and government agencies.
The Commission, with the assistance of AMP, drew up a strong case for New Zealand to host the event, succeeding against several other bidding nations.
In awarding the event to New Zealand, the OECD noted that we are one of the leading countries in relation to financial capability education and that the Commission has been an active member, contributing to the success of the OECD and INFE.
The Commission intends to make the most of the OECD’s presence here by organising an evening function for more than 400 guests that will showcase the best of New Zealand.
More ways are being drawn up to involve Exchange members in the summit and associated events through sponsorship and networking (watch this space).
