The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) in celebration of its 23rd anniversary, will conduct the 2016 Awards Ceremony and Appreciation Lunch in Region X and Caraga. Focusing on the theme “Sustained Partnership, Sustained Economic Growth,” the event will be held on Tuesday, 6 September 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at The Mallberry Suites Business Hotel, Osmeña St., Cagayan De Oro City. Monetary Board Member Felipe M. Medalla will lead in honoring this year’s awardees and stakeholders.
The BSP will bestow awards to eight outstanding partners: for the Information Support category—two for the Business Expectations Survey (BES), and two for Sources of Information for the Report on Regional Economic Developments; and for the Advocacy Support category—two for the Currency Programs of the BSP and two 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 granted to the BES respondents selected from among the country’s top corporations in Region X and Caraga 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 X and Caraga. Meanwhile, 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 X and Caraga, such as the Demonetization of the New Design Series.

The awards ceremony and appreciation lunch for stakeholders in Region X and Caraga is the ninth in the series of BSP’s regional stakeholders’ events which will be held from July to September 2016 in 12 areas outside the National Capital Region.

This event is expected to further reinforce the alliances between the BSP and its stakeholders in information gathering and conduct of advocacy campaigns that will help the BSP carry out its objectives of maintaining price stability, promoting financial stability as well as ensuring an efficient payments and settlement system in the country.
