Strategic Plan

On 9 January 2020, the Governing Council of the Banco de España approved the Strategic Plan 2024, the Bank’s first such plan. A five-year time frame (2020-2024) is envisaged for executing the Plan, with a mid-term review scheduled to take stock of the work performed and allow adjustments to be made to reflect the experience gained and any developments in the interim.

The Strategic Plan describes the mission of the Banco de España as being to support stable economic growth, signals the Bank’s ambition to become an outstanding and dynamic central bank committed to society and identifies its core institutional values: independence, transparency, integrity, excellence and its public-service vocation.
