Bahrain Bourse (BHB), a self-regulated multi-asset marketplace, has concluded its participation in the 11th Edition of the "Youth City 2030" program, hosted by the Ministry of Youth and Sport Affairs alongside Tamkeen as a strategic partner. The event was held in the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre from 24th July to 31st August, 2022, under the slogan "Let Us Connect Again" to educate the youth, nurture their talents and foster their creativity.
Bahrain Bourse’s participation in the “Youth City 2030” involved a series of awareness sessions covering basic concepts about money management, savings and financial planning to aid young students aged 9-12 to make sound financial decisions. Sessions were followed with various edutainment activities to instill the concepts learned during the sessions.
Shaikh Khalifa bin Ebrahim Al-Khalifa, Chief Executive Officer of Bahrain Bourse said, “Bahrain Bourse’s participation in the Youth City 2030 aims to further equip the youth with key financial knowledge and enhance financial inclusivity and goes in line with Bahrain Bourse’s awareness programs aimed at increasing financial literacy awareness across various age groups within society, particularly among the youth. Bahrain Bourse places a high value on youth awareness programs which are well aligned with Bahrain Bourse's own initiative, "The Smart Investor Program," a national awareness initiative for elementary students in partnership with INJAZ Bahrain.”
Commenting on the successful participation of INJAZ Bahrain at Youth City 2030, HH Shaikha Hessa Bint Khalifa Al Khalifa, Chairperson of INJAZ Bahrain said: “Youth City provides an essential platform for the Kingdom’s youth to share knowledge, elevate their skills, and participate in an engaging creativity-fueled environment among peers, mentors, and leaders. INJAZ Bahrain is proud to support students and the Kingdom’s youth as they develop into the leaders of tomorrow and gain crucial knowledge across key sectors via impact-driven valuable opportunities with key partners and platforms as they excel.”
