Economic and Financial Education Programmes
To further its goal to achieve a financially developed and vibrant Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU), the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) spearheads the implementation of a financial education programme. The programme is built on two main pillars:
    (i) Maintenance of a strong EC dollar, and
    (ii) The OECS single financial space

The objectives of the programme are:
    To facilitate understanding of money matters and the importance of investing
    To mobilise public discussion on economic and financial matters
    To create awareness and interest in financial developments and mobilise the public to take advantage of the investment opportunities in the ECCU.

Annual Programmes

Eastern Caribbean Currency Union Economic Review
Every year in January, the Governor of the ECCB reports on the economic performance of the ECCU. The objectives of this annual media presentation, which began in January 2005, are to:
   Educate the citizens of the ECCU about the performance and prospects of the ECCU economy
   Stimulate public discussion of economic issues that are relevant to the currency union
   Empower the people of the ECCU to become informed consumers
   Motivate the citizens of the ECCU to participate in the socio-economic development of the region

Financial Information Month
Financial Information Month (FIM) is celebrated in October each year in the ECCU. The Month forms part of an ECCU public education programme coordinated by the ECCB. The programme promotes awareness and understanding of general financial and economic issues, that is, functional financial and economic literacy among the citizens. It incorporates a series of initiatives designed to support the attainment of the goal of “a financially developed and vibrant ECCU region that fosters strong and sustainable economic growth and the improved well-being of the citizenry.”

During the month, the Bank, in collaboration with financial institutions, Ministries of Education and Finance, the media and community groups, implements various educational initiatives aimed at preparing citizens to make financial decisions that can result in an improvement in their quality of life.
