It was a delight to be a lead presenter at the 5 day workshop in Colombo on Investor and Intermediary Education. Sixty staff from regulators across Asia were keen to learn how to develop financial education programs.
This was the 3rd year where I have been a presenter at the APEC workshop, and it is pleasing to see the level of sophistication and enthusiasm growing each year. I see that people who have attended previous workshops are now actively implementing programs in their home countries.
