Technical assistance

Foreword

Dear Colleagues,  

The Czech National Bank has been actively involved in providing technical cooperation amongst central banks for 17 years. Continuous demand for bilateral consultations and seminars the Czech National Bank holds on a regular basis often exceeds available capacities and proves that the exchange of knowledge and practical experience related to the process of transformation and integration into European structures is useful and interesting to colleagues from other central banks. The attendance of colleagues from a wide range of institutions and their positive feedback on the cooperation shows that the activities of the Czech National Bank are valued and provides our experts with the motivation to invest themselves in further experience sharing and offering our know-how in the technical cooperation programme.

Allow me to present you with the new training catalogue containing details of the seminars prepared by the Czech National Bank for 2020. In the hope to satisfy the demand, four out of six offered seminars cover the issues most requested over the past years, including cash circulation management, payment and securities regulation, statistics, and human resources management. On top of that, the seminars “Selected Issues of Central Bank Governance” and “Near Term Forecasting and Data Analysis Seminar” held in two-year cycles will be taking  place in 2020. All seminars are prepared and led by the Czech National Bank’s experts who deal with the presented issues on a daily basis. The workshops also include active contributions by the participants in the form of presentations and panel discussions. This creates an environment that encourages sharing experience and expertise, not only from the Czech National Bank to other institutions, but also amongst the institutions themselves.

I believe that the offer prepared by our experts will meet your institution´s needs and that we will have the honour of hosting your members of staff at the Czech National Bank in 2020. In addition, the Czech National Bank is prepared to offer its know-how on specific topics and to welcome your experts for a visit on an individualised basis. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you should feel a need for any expertise we can provide.

We look forward to welcoming colleagues from other central banks at our events at the Czech National Bank in 2020.
