The event, organized by the Ministry of Finance and the project of the Research Institute of the Ministry of Finance of Russia “My Finance.rf”, became the main event within the framework of the traditional Financial Literacy Weeks.
“The idea of the festival is to show how to apply knowledge about finance in practice to the benefit of yourself and your loved ones, to help people understand how to maintain emotional and financial stability, how to use modern financial instruments and manage a personal budget,” noted the Deputy Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation Pavel Kadochnikov.
The main message of this year’s FinHealthy Lifestyle Fest is that knowledge and skills should not remain theory, they need to be used in practice.
“Knowing how to act correctly and following these rules in reality are two different things. For example, most people know that before taking out a loan from a bank, they need to soberly assess their financial burden. At the same time, the number of borrowers with three or more loans continues to increase. The state’s task is to provide knowledge and help citizens build a comfortable financial route to achieve their goals,” said the head of the NIFI project Ministry of Finance Russia “Myfinance.rf” Mikhail Sergeychik.
