The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) will hold the 2016 Awards Ceremony and Appreciation Lunch for BSP Stakeholders in Region IX who have continuously supported its statistical initiatives, information requirements, advocacy programs as well as the effective delivery of its functions. Focusing on the theme “Sustained Partnership, Sustained Economic Growth,” the event will be held on Tuesday, 30 August 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose Room, New Generation Building, BSP Zamboanga Branch, Zamboanga City, as part of the BSP’s 23rd anniversary celebration.
The BSP will give awards to four outstanding partners—two for the Business Expectations Survey (BES), one for Sources of Information for the Report on Regional Economic Developments and one for Implementing BSP Advocacy on the Conduct of Public Information Campaigns.
The Outstanding Respondent among Large and Medium Firms and the Outstanding Respondent among Small Firms will be conferred to the BES respondents selected from among the country’s top corporations in Region IX who have participated regularly in the survey by providing timely, complete, accurate and consistent responses. The Outstanding Partner for Sources 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 IX. Lastly, the agency or institution that has supported the BSP’s public information campaigns conducted in Region IX will be awarded as the Outstanding Regional Partner for Implementing BSP Advocacy on the Conduct of Public Information Campaigns.
This occasion is the eighth of the BSP’s regional stakeholders’ events which will be held from July to September 2016 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 13 July 2016 at the BSP Main Complex, Manila.
This event is expected to further strengthen the partnerships between the BSP and its stakeholders in information gathering and advocacy campaigns that will help carry out its mandate of maintaining price stability and promoting a healthy financial system as well as ensuring an efficient payments and settlement system in the country.
