MIEF and ESE Start a Course for Finance Journalists

MIEF y ESE inician curso para periodistas en el mundo financiero

 

DCV is the founder of the Inclusion and Financial Education Committee (Mesa de Inclusión y Educación Financiera, MIEF), a group that gathers all the financial trade associations of the country.

June 17 was the start date of the seventh version of the course for financial journalists led by Centro de Estudios Financieros (CEF), ESE Business School, Universidad de Los Andes, to which the Inclusion and Financial Education Committee (MIEF) joined and where Depósito Central de Valores (DCV) is one of its 11 members.

This free initiative that will take place on Fridays until June 15 seeks to educate communicators in economics concepts and improve the quality of information on the financial system. Five sessions will be held to address economic and financial topics of high impact in our country, led by renowned speakers in the area.

In the first session, María Cecilia Cifuentes, Executive Director of CEF, talked about "The foundations of economic growth and the importance of the capital market in the well-being of people." The presentation, with the attendance of 65 journalists and communicators, was moderated by Pilar Concha, General Manager of the Chilean Association of Investment Funds (ACAFI), with the opening remarks of Juan Jaime Díaz, Chair of the National Press Association (ANP).

During her speech, María Cecilia Cifuentes talked about the four main factors in economic development, physical capital, human capital, technology, and institutionality. She highlighted the second one, saying that cognitive skills are not currently enough because social skills have become just as important. She also explained that this is of great importance since we are in the middle of the fourth industrial revolution that has a direct impact on skilled human capital.
