The Central Bank of Eswatini has been awarded the 2021 Website of the Year in the Annual Central Banking Awards. This global award recognises outstanding performance and achievements of individuals and organisations within the central banking community globally.
Eswatini is the second African country to ever win the award after Kenya in 2017. The judges were impressed with the significant improvements in the website’s security, communication and the speed of the project implementation which must have been more difficult during the COVID-9 pandemic. The style and symbolism of the website, according to the Central Banking Committee, strikes to the heart of our national character. The judges were particularly impressed by the website’s ability to appeal to the average citizen of Eswatini.
Accepting the Award, the Governor said, “I am deeply honoured to accept, on behalf of the Central Bank of Eswatini (CBE), this prestigious Central Banking Award. The CBE conveys its appreciation for recognizing our efforts in central bank communication. The Bank has come a long way in ensuring that the mandate is understood by the people that we serve, and that the wall of central bank secrecy is unveiled. The website is hence a symbolic balance of our rich culture and technology advancements that caters for the needs of our ever-evolving stakeholders, something that is unique and that we will maintain right into the near future.”
