The four missions of the NBB
Central banks have four areas of activity, which also make up the National Bank of Belgium’s main raison d’être. Its four missions aim to guarantee well-being, provide security and boost confidence. These missions form the four pillars of our temple, on which our wider vision hinges. As a central bank, the NBB is situated at the crossroads of all economic and financial information about the country, it safeguards price stability, supervises the financial system, guarantees safe cash and efficient payment systems and provides crucial economic analyses and recommendations. The tasks that we carry out put us in a unique position in the public debate.
