The BSP will hold its Public Information Campaign at the BSP La Union Regional Office on 13 August 2009, Thursday. The program starts at 1:00 p.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. Members of the academe, local business community and government agencies are expected to participate in this event. The BSP’s Public Information Campaign, which has been ongoing for nine years, aims to brief the public on the most recent economic and financial developments in the country, enhance public awareness on the role of the BSP in the economy and engage BSP stakeholders in discussions to obtain feedback on how to improve the delivery of the BSP’s services. A better informed public is a key to a more participatory engagement in the country’s economic development.
Topics that will be covered by audio visual presentations and lectures during the Public Information Campaign include the role of the BSP in the Philippine economy, microfinance, e-money, payments and settlements system and recent economic developments. The presentations will be followed by an open forum.
To date, the BSP has successfully conducted 72 Public Information Campaigns all over the country since 2000. These campaigns have been attended by more than 5,000 representatives from the academe, business and labor sectors, the banking community, government and non-government organizations as well as members of the press.
