IBFI’s annual programme offers free training seminars for the managerial staff of central banks and banking supervisory bodies.
We insist on the fact that trainees have to attend every session of the seminar and sign the attendance sheet circulated every day.
Banque de France covers the following costs:
Trainees cover in particular the following costs:
Participants care for their own hotel reservation and payment. The IBFI provides a list of hotels nearby at negotiated rates. However, a partner hotel is proposed for participants eligible to the coverage of accommodation costs under the following conditions.
1 - Participants from central banks of middle-income and industrialised countries. Banque de France does not cover accommodation costs.
2 – Participants from central banks of countries of the HIPC (highly indebted poor countries) IMF/WB initiative. The Banque de France covers the accommodation costs from the night before to the night after the seminar (for example 6 nights for a 5-day seminar).
3 - Participants belonging to the other Least Developed Countries (LDC). Banque de France covers half of the hotel nights.
The eligibility of the participant is automatically determined by the application platform depending on the country.
The accommodation cost average for eligible trainee implies (s)he stays at the partner hotel. The cost coverage applies for a single room with breakfast. It does not include: additional cost for twin room, longer stay (additional nights before or after the seminar), mini-bar, telephone and other services,
In case of withdrawal, it is absolutely necessary to inform us at least 10 days prior to the seminar.
Given the large number of applications, a late cancellation deprives another central bank applicant from joining the seminar and incurs cancellation fees.
For those participants eligible to partial or total coverage, hotel cancellation fees in case of no-show shall be chargeable to the institution of the participant involved. A restrictive position may be adopted vis-à-vis any future applications from the latter.
 As the case might be, a figure rounded up to the nearest decimal number. For instance for a 4-day seminar implying 5 nights, the BDF shall cover 3 nights.
