“Financial education has never been more important than in today’s environment. Participating effectively in the financial system can improve the economic well being of individuals and businesses. Financial education is therefore key so that members of our society will benefit from the financial system and from the new technologies that are transforming our financial landscape.
It will help consumers to better understand the risks involved in managing their finances and will facilitate better financial decision making. Building a generation with financial competence therefore needs to start from an early age. This has been the motivation of Bank Negara Malaysia in the development of the Pocket Money Book or Buku Wang Saku for schools that was first launchedin 1999.
We are very honoured to have progressed this project in collaboration with Datuk Lat whose illustrations have made the complex subject of fundamental issues in finance appealing to school children” Zeti Akhtar Aziz
