  Bank Negara Malaysia releases the tenth series of the "Buku Wang Saku" (BWS) and "Buku Perancangan dan Pengurusan Kewangan Keluarga" (BPPKK) for 2008. The publication of these books is part of Bank Negara Malaysia's on-going effort to enhance public awareness on the importance of managing personal finances and prudent financial planning.
 
The BWS is designed specially for school children and illustrates the importance of financial education in developing skills and knowledge in money management. Together with the co-curricular activities of the Student Financial Club or "Kelab Kewangan Pelajar Sekolah", the BWS is a learning tool to inculcate the culture and habit of smart personal money management among school children at a very young age. The caricature in BWS 2008 continues to be the illustration of Y.Bhg. Dato' Mohd Nor Khalid, or better known as Dato' Lat. In collaboration with the financial institutions under the School Adoption Programme that was introduced since 1999, a total of 5.9 million copies of BWS have been distributed to the school children in more than 7,000 schools in Malaysia.
 
The BWS has two versions, one each for secondary and primary school children. The BWS for secondary school children introduced since 2005, provides basic accounting knowledge and personal money management tips, while the BWS for primary school children continues to emphasise on the use of the BWS as a tool for managing their pocket money.
 
Financial institutions participating in the School Adoption Programme, namely the commercial banks, the life insurance companies, Bank Simpanan Nasional, Bank Pertanian Malaysia and Bank Kerjasama Rakyat Malaysia Berhad will be distributing the BWS 2008 to their respective adopted schools. The electronic version of the BWS is available in the financial education website at http://www.duitsaku.com.my/.
 
The BPPKK 2008 or Household Planning and Management Book 2008 is designed to assist families in preparing their budget and managing their household income, expenses, savings and investments. The book is made more user-friendly and incorporates useful tips on managing household finances, including tips on credit card usage, buying insurance cover and buying a house.
 
The BWS and BPPKK 2008 are available at Bank Negara Malaysia LINK, Kuala Lumpur; Bank Negara Malaysia branches in Penang, Johor Bahru, Kuala Terengganu, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu, MPH Bookstores and other selected book stores.
