HKAB announces launch of “Banking Perspective” - Youth Financial Education Programme 2016

As part of its ongoing commitment to fulfill the moto "Banks and the Community, We Care We Share", the Hong Kong Association of Banks ("HKAB") partners with the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups (HKFYG) to organise a six-month Youth Financial Education Programme – "Banking Perspective" - this year.

Professor K.C. Chan, Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury of HKSAR; Ms May Tan, Chairperson of HKAB; and members from the HKAB committees jointly officiated at the kick-off ceremony. Three representative of HKAB also took the opportunity to introduce some details of the programme.

Professor K.C. Chan, Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury, said, "Financial learning is lifelong and good financial behaviours should be cultivated from young. I am glad to see the HKAB launches again a series of activities to educate our secondary school students and help them gain a better understanding of the banking and finance sector. This is particularly helpful for those who are interested to join the industry. "

Ms May Tan, Chairperson of HKAB, said, "Hong Kong Association of Banks has been very committed to serve the local community. We are pleased to organize a financial education programme focusing on career planning for secondary school students this year. We hope that the young people shall be able to know more about the banking and finance industry through the programme. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the HKFYG, all members of HKAB and the industry for their staunch support to the programme."

The six-month long programme will start from late June to November. The programme includes three major activities: "I am a Banker", bank visits and financial education workshops for youth. More than a thousand high school students will participate in the events. Students are expected to gain a deeper understanding of the banking industry and to get their financial literacy improved, which will be essential for students charting their career paths, upon completion of the programme.
