Central bank arranges lectures introducing principles of euro adoption

On Thursday, the Deputy Governor of Eesti Pank, Rein Minka, will give a public lecture at the Elva City Library to shed light on the schedule, principles and practical aspects of the euro adoption. The series of lectures includes performances in 18 cities and rural municipalities.

"The aim of the lecture series is to let people know what awaits them, should the decision regarding the euro adoption this summer be positive. State agencies, the central bank and commercial banks are working together to make the changeover as comfortable and smooth as possible. The key principle of the changeover is to avoid extra costs for people", the Deputy Governor of Eesti Pank Rein Minka said.

The Governor of Eesti Pank Andres Lipstok gave a lecture within the same series in Krootuse, Põlvamaa, at the end of March. This Wednesday, the Head Specialist of the Economics Department of Eesti Pank Natalja Viilmann gave a lecture in Kallaste.

In April, lectures are scheduled to take place in Valga, Jõgeva, Narva, Kohtla-Järve, Rakvere, Haapsalu, Jõhvi and Kuressaare. In May, lectures will be held in Paide, Võru, Viljandi, Kärdla, Keila and Pärnu. At the beginning of June, a lecture will also be held in Rapla.

Lectures will be given by the Governor of Eesti Pank Andres Lipstok, Deputy Governors Rein Minka and Märten Ross, the Head of the Economics Department Ülo Kaasik and the Head Specialist of the same department Natalja Viilmann.
