The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) will host the 2013 BSP-UP Professorial Chair Lectures on 24 May 2013 at the Executive Business Center, BSP Main Complex, Malate, Manila. These lectures have been held annually since 2008. Beginning 2012, they are being conducted twice a year.
The Professorial Chair Lectures provide the opportunity for chairholders to present their research, and for the participants to discuss important issues in economics, statistics, business administration, finance, accounting, agriculture and other related fields as part of the collaboration between the BSP and the academe.
The old Central Bank of the Philippines endowed the CBP-UP Diamond Jubilee professorial chairs in several colleges of the UP System in 1983. Its successor institution, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, upgraded them to the BSP UP Centennial professorial chairs in 2008. Along with the BSP Sterling professorial chairs which were established in 2006 at the UP School of Statistics and the UP School of Economics, the professorial chairs serve to recognize and promote the integral role played by the University of the Philippines in the social and economic development of the country. Hence, they serve as an explicit manifestation of a partnership between two institutions.
For this occasion, BSP Governor Amando M. Tetangco, Jr. will welcome the guests and participants while UP System President Mr. Alfredo E. Pascual will deliver the opening remarks.
Three lectures will be delivered. These will be:
- The Rationale for Asset Revaluation in the Philippine Electricity Sector
By Dr. Helena Agnes S. Valderrama, BSP UP Centennial Professor of Accounting
- Exploring the Relationship of Supply Chain Collaboration and Trust
By Dr. Ma. Gloria V. Talavera, BSP UP Centennial Professor of Business Administration
- Using Threshold Models to Characterize Selected Economic and Financial Time Series Data

Meanwhile, Dr. Jaime C. Laya, former Governor of the Central Bank of the Philippines will serve as the luncheon speaker of the event.
The lectures will be attended by invited participants from the academe, government agencies, private institutions and BSP officials.
