  • Up to 40 students per visit.

Higher
Education

The objective of educational visits for higher-education students is to deepen their understanding of the role and duties of the Central Bank, as well as to explain economic concepts and processes, such as monetary policy, and monetary policy rate, inflation/deflation and their consequences, the payment system, among others.

Cultural Heritage Day

The Central Bank actively participates in the Cultural Heritage Day promoted annually by the Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage every last Sunday of May. For the public it is a great opportunity to get to know the historical and heritage spaces of the BCCh, such as the Board Room, the office of the Governor of the Bank, and the Numismatic Museum.

Regional Meetings

The Central Bank organizes the dissemination of its Monetary Policy Reports (IPoM) in the regions of the country, having Councilors of the institution in different cities to present each report in March, June, September and December before the local community, economic agents and politicians from the provinces of the country. This networking effort is developed by allying with unions and/or universities, in order to coordinate each presentation and actively manage the dissemination of its main economic report with the participation of local actors.
