Hosting 2016 OECD Summit
New Zealand hosted the high profile OECD International Network on Financial Education summit in Auckland for the first time.
Senior delegates from around the world gathered to identify innovative policies and strategies around financial education and consumer protection, with the goal of improving people’s financial wellbeing.
The event provided a unique opportunity for Exchange members to talk to central bankers, regulators, academics and government officials.
The four-day summit was made up of two days of closed sessions for members only, followed by a high-level global symposium and surrounding events, which were also 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 capitalised on the OECD’s presence here by organising an evening function for more than 400 guests to 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).
