OECD/INFE Report on Financial Literacy and Resilience in APEC Economies
This report presents results on the level of financial literacy and financial resilience in seven APEC economies (Hong Kong, China; Indonesia; Korea; Malaysia; Peru; Russia and Thailand) that participated in the OECD/INFE 2020 International Survey of Adult Financial Literacy, which includes data collected in late 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic using the 2018 OECD/INFE Toolkit. The report also discusses the financial education landscape across all APEC economies, focusing on financial education policy responses to the unprecedented crisis currently unfolding due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and on case studies of how financial education can support financial resilience and well-being.
This report supports the 2015 APEC Cebu Action Plan and complements the 2019 OECD/INFE report on Financial Education in APEC economies. The report reflects inputs and guidance from APEC economies and members of the OECD/INFE.
