HSBC Bank (Viet Nam) Ltd.'s financial literacy programme for elementary students, JA More Than Money, drew to a close last week with the Kids Run Business competitions and awards ceremony in both Ha Noi and HCM City.
Winners were selected based on how well they used skills they learned in JA More than Money, such as co-operative decision making, conducting market research, calculating set-up and running costs for a small business. Teamwork, presentation skills, profit orientation and attention to business ethics were also considered.
The programme is part of a suite of HSBC initiatives to promote greater financial knowledge in Viet Nam. Other projects include teaching personal financial management to young women and youth in remote areas and boosting financial education amongst high school and university students.-VNS
