Highlights of the Bank of Finland Museum’s autumn programme of webinars for the public include the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic, the digitalisation of money and payments and the renewal of reference interest rates applied to, among other things, housing loans.

By arranging events for the public, the Bank of Finland seeks to promote citizens’ understanding of the economy and knowledge of the financial markets. An additional aim is to increase dialogue with the public.

The autumn events will be held as webinars, meaning you can follow the events and pose questions online. The links to the events will be on the Museum website, at: https://www.rahamuseo.fi/tapahtumat/. The events will commence at 17:00, and will be held in Finnish, unless otherwise stated.
