The Commissioner for the Protection of Equality in the Republic of Serbia, Ms Brankica Jankovic, was a guest at the meeting, where she addressed the significance of financial literacy and inclusion for the society overall, emphasising the importance of cooperation between the public and private sector institutions in that field.

"The fact that the EBF and 14 banks associations from across Europe have expressed their willingness to hold a meeting of the Financial Education Project Group of the European Banking Federation in Belgrade, and have it organised by the ASB, confirms the outstanding international reputation of the Association of Serbian Banks, built over many years of constructive and active contribution to the creation of best practices in the domain of financial literacy today. We are especially pleased by the fact that new initiatives have been established at the meeting in Belgrade, which we will work on together in the coming period, as well as that new partnerships have been made with the countries that are the leaders of the modern and technologically advanced education model. The achieved international reputation of the Association of Serbian Banks and the Serbian banking sector realised in the domain of financial literacy has multiple effects, and it is certain that it stimulates and facilitates the development of new activities and cooperation in various other segments of our operations", - stated dr Slađana Sredojević, member of the EBF Project Group for Financial Education, ASB Special Advisor for International Cooperation, Financial Markets and Education, and Head of the ASB Bank Training Centre, after the meeting.
