its
collaboration with 14 other schools in the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU).

"We will introduce students to the trading system of the
BRVM
to develop market culture and contribute to the emergence of a financial framework able to support the development of this sector," said BRVM chairman, Gabriel Fal, quoted by APS news agency.

According to him, training of young people is a prerequisite for the economic development of the African continent, on
a
par with investment and infrastructure and the development of new industries.

He added that the collaboration between the BRVM and schools will focus on the offer by the regional stock exchange and will grant students access to a trading system that will let them attend the Stock Exchange's daily
sessions
in real time.

This collaboration will also provide a framework for the development of a partnership resulting in better interaction between higher education and
the
regional stock market.
