Know more about “Financial Digital Literacy” program
As the whole economy is going digital, it is necessary to educate the citizens about technological development in financial markets. Though the digital trends are increasing in urban areas, the rural area is still beyond digital access and know how. Hence, the government has introduced “Digital Nepal Framework- 2075” to bring financial and digital inclusion in the economy. NRB too has made some policy reforms like introducing QR framework, allowing prepaid dollar card, licensing PSPs and PSOs to strengthen digital foundation.
This is a training project of Media International, a financial training company in Nepal. The training would be provided to bring awareness of digital payments like wallets and QR code payments. Media International has been conducting national campaigns like Banking Expo and financial literacy programs to promote digitalization and entrepreneurship. Moreover, its events are successful in raising public awareness about banking, insurance, stock market and entrepreneurship so far.
To make this nationwide campaign successful, Media International has partnered with many BFIs, payment systems and organizations so far. Continuing the partnership, it has signed an agreement with IME Pay to get the resource person for the training.
