Own financial literacy programs operate in 85 regions of the country, including the Southern Federal District. At the same time, one of the tasks that will have to be solved in the near future by the participants in the implementation of the Strategy to improve financial literacy in the Russian Federation is to strengthen interdepartmental interaction.

Also among the tasks: the development of the volunteer movement and the scaling of best practices.

Together with our partners from the Ministry of Finance of Russia, we constantly monitor and replicate the best regional practices in financial literacy. Let me remind you that some areas of our work arose precisely as local initiatives, for example, sessions of online lessons for schoolchildren were created by colleagues from the Bank of Russia from Nizhny Novgorod. Now in many regions there are various interdepartmental projects, and this experience is also useful for further promoting financial literacy. Thanks to colleagues from the regions, we understand what worries people, how best to convey useful information, and as a result, we create new educational and educational formats , — says Mikhail Mamuta, Head of the Service for Consumer Rights Protection and Financial Inclusion of the Bank of Russia .

A separate area is the introduction of financial literacy into the education system.
