The bell rings at BVB on the occasion of GMW

Bucharest Stock Exchange

On the occasion of the Global Money Week, which this year will take place between March 22 – 26, Bucharest Stock Exchange (BVB) together with the Financial Supervisory Authority (ASF), will organise an official opening of the trading session on March 22nd. The event will take place at BVB HQ, starting with 10:00 a.m. and can be watched live on the Facebook and YouTube channels of Bucharest Stock Exchange.

Global Money Week (GMW), a Child & Youth Finance International (CYFI) initiative, is an annual financial awareness campaign built to inspire children and young people to learn about money matters, livelihoods and entrepreneurship.

GMW team believe that today’s children and youth should become empowered economic citizens, capable of understanding the importance of saving, and equipped with the skills to be employed and create their own livelihoods.

By empowering children and youth, we can help them create a positive wave that will expand from themselves, to their families and to entire communities.

During GMW, public, private and not-for-profit organisations work together to organise different types of activities for children and youth to spark excitement around financial education through:

online activities, drawing, photo, essay and video contests, online financial education workshops, online financial education escape rooms or other exciting activities on financial education and money matters;

visits to banks, parliaments, central banks, stock exchanges, currency exchanges, money museums, local businesses, and global corporate companies;

financial workshops and sessions; financial education fairs, open market events, financial literacy rallies;

financial education games and savings competitions, financial football matches; drawing, photo, essay and video contests.

Opening the trading session at the Bucharest Stock Exchange will be one of the local kick-off events for the Global Money Week. The event is organized by BVB in partnership with the Financial Regulatory Authority.
