Sergio Woyecheszen visited the BCRA's stand at Tecnópolis, a space to promote financial education and inclusion. The Vice President got around the stand and became acquainted with the different activities intended for people to learn about the operation of the financial system from an innovative experience.
“The stand is a bridge between the BCRA, macro economy, and people’s needs,” said Woyecheszen. “It is a step forward in financial education and inclusion matters, and has been designed for people to get acquainted with different financial services and make a better use of them.” The Vice President had the chance of taking part in the activities with visitors–from adults to children, and families.
“Education along with financial inclusion are fundamental to revert so many decades of volatility and to reduce inequalities,” he concluded.
Under the motto 'Including, Teaching, and Promoting is Central', the stand seeks to test visitors' knowledge of the financial system, and to let them learn all about banking and its advantages.
Some of the activities involve: a simulation run on mobile devices and an app specially designed to experience payments by transfer; an immersive 3D experience on how banknotes give way to everyday electronic transactions; a BCRA’s trivia, a 100% interactive and ludic space to answer questions on the channels and circuits through which money turns into electronic means of payment; and a micro theatre where a short film is released on saving tools and financial users’ security and rights.
The BCRA’s stand at Tecnópolis will be open on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, from 12 a.m. to 8 p.m. (until December 12). Prior registration through the website is required.
