International Central Banking Courses

I am pleased to announce that the Central Bank of Malta, together with the School of Economics of the University of Nottingham, is launching two training courses in central banking. The courses will be delivered by University of Nottingham staff at the Central Bank of Malta in Valletta in September 2019. These courses should serve as useful opportunities for central bankers to deepen their knowledge in key areas related to core central bank functions. This training initiative is intended to strengthen the Central Bank of Malta's ties of co-operation with other central banks in the region and beyond. I look forward to welcoming you to Malta.
