The ILO's DG signs an agreement on financial education with the Central Bank of Morocco

Together with the teams of the Youth at Work and IRAM technical cooperation projects, the Social Finance Programme established a collaboration with the Moroccan Central Bank (through the Moroccan Foundation for Financial Education-FMEF) to develop and roll out a national financial education programme.

During his visit to Morocco in March 2016, ILO's Director General Guy Ryder signed a collaboration agreement with the Governor of the Central Bank and President of FMEF Abdellatif Jouahri. In his interaction with the Central Bank, the DG acknowledged the financial inclusion agenda's contributions to economic growth, employment and decent work. The collaboration includes Youth at Work and IRAM. The ILO's press release can be found here.
