In celebration of its 22nd anniversary, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) will host the 2015 Awards Ceremony and Appreciation Lunch for stakeholders in Region Vlll. This event aims to honor the BSP’s stakeholders that have continuously supported its statistical initiatives, information requirements, and advocacy programs. With the theme “12 Years and Beyond: Celebrating Strong Partnerships and Successful Collaboration,” the awards ceremony will be held on Tuesday, 1 September 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose Hall, BSP Tacloban Branch, Tacloban City. Monetary Board Member Felipe M. Medalla will lead in honoring this year’s awardees and stakeholders.
The BSP will confer four awards to outstanding partners—two for the Business Expectations Survey (BES), one for Source of Information for the Report on Regional Economic Developments, and one for the Currency Programs of the BSP.
The Outstanding Respondent among Large and Medium Firms and the Outstanding Respondent among Small Firms will be given to the BES respondents selected from among the country’s top corporations in Region Vlll that have participated regularly in the survey by providing timely, complete, accurate and consistent responses. The Outstanding Partner for Source of Information for the Report on Regional Economic Developments will be awarded to the agency or institution that provided the BSP with information support for an effective environment scan of Region Vlll. The Outstanding Regional Partner for Currency Programs will be given to the agency or institution that supported the BSP’s currency programs and advocacies in Region Vlll such as the clean note policy and coin recirculation.
This occasion is the seventh leg of the BSP’s regional stakeholders’ events which will be held from July to September 2015 in 12 areas outside the National Capital Region (AONCR) to honor stakeholders in various award categories. Stakeholders of the BSP in the National Capital Region were earlier recognized during the awards ceremony held last 14 July 2015 at the BSP Main Office.
This event is expected to further strengthen the partnerships between the BSP and its stakeholders in information gathering and conduct of advocacy campaigns that will help the BSP carry out its mandate of maintaining price stability and promoting financial stability as well as ensuring an efficient payments and settlements system in the country.
