The 2nd International Student Financial Security Olympiad closed in the Sirius Park of Science and Art in Sochi, the southern capital of the Russian Federation. Representatives of 12 states took part in the competition. Together with the hosts, they included Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Belarus, Brazil, India, South Africa, China and Turkmenistan.
The event, which has become annual, is held on the instructions of Russian President Vladimir Putin to improve the financial literacy of young people. This intellectual marathon started last May, when the large-scale qualifying round was held in the participating countries in four Olympic categories: economics and financial security; law; international relations; informatics and information security.
