Students Visited the FSC
On January 19, 2006 the Financial Supervision Commission hosted a one-day visit by students from the 11th and 12th classes of Atanas Burov Professional High School of Light Industry and Economics, the town of Gorna Oryahovitsa. The students were acquainted in detail with the activity of the supervisory institution and its structure; thereafter, they visited the Bulgarian Stock Exchange and Elana Investment Company.
The visit was a continuation of the Development of the Non-banking Financial Sector in Bulgaria Educational Programme, which has been organized by the Commission for 3 years now for high school students from the schools of economics in the country. The aim of the said Programme is to provide professional education, information while promoting the financial culture among students, as well as furthering their knowledge with regard to the financial markets and the role of the regulatory institution. The idea of the above initiative is to enrich the knowledge of the growing up and to awaken their interest in the financial sphere.
