New technologies hold great promise, especially in the financial sector. New digital systems and business models can help boost productivity and lower costs, for example through automation and reduced transaction costs. They can also improve access to financial services and create greater equality of opportunity. Taking advantage of digitalisation requires a certain degree of knowledge of financial systems. How can we take advantage of the opportunities offered by modern technologies, particularly in the area of finance, while at the same time managing the associates risks? At this high-ranking conference more than 180 G20 delegates, academics, government experts and representatives from international organisations and the financial industry will come together to exchange their views and to open the discussion on suitable education and training measures for enhancing financial literacy.
The conference will be streamed live on the internet. The following livestream link will be active at 1:00 pm on 25 January 2017.
