Updates on Hong Kong Strategy for Financial Literacy
Strategy and its focuses
The IEC has undertaken a comprehensive process to develop the Strategy building on the results of a public consultation, feedback from a series of stakeholder workshops, international best practice guidance as well as the full support from the community. The Strategy is the first initiative of its kind in Hong Kong with three strategic focuses: raise awareness of the benefits of financial education, extend opportunities to learn and enhance coordination and collaboration among stakeholders.

HKSFL Ambassadors and Supporting Organisations
To date, 40 sector organisations and industry associations have signed up as supporting organisations, and together with 11 ambassadors will promote the benefits of financial education to the public. A video series highlighting individual ambassador stories (11 in total) is available now to raise awareness and stimulate discussions.

HKSFL website and associated initiatives
Website: A dedicated website (www.hkiec.hk/hksfl) was established to serve as a central place to provide information, address enquiries and collate input (via firstname.lastname@example.org), facilitate and coordinate the engagement of stakeholders throughout the development and implementation of the HKSFL.
Financial Competency Framework (www.hkiec.hk/fcf) which identifies a comprehensive set of knowledge, skills, attitudes, motivations and behaviour required for financial literacy, is aiming to help establish behavioural standards for the public to emulate and for organisations to utilise when developing their initiatives.
IEC Research Grant: The IEC has launched a research grant to encourage high-quality research with an objective to stimulate new financial literacy research and promote robust partnerships between financial education practitioners and academics. http://www.hkiec.hk/web/en/about-iec/research-grant.html
