As part of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas’ (BSP) celebration of its 23rd anniversary, the 2016 Awards Ceremony and Appreciation Lunch for BSP Stakeholders in Region V will be held to honor the agencies or institutions that have provided exemplary support to the BSP’s statistical undertakings, information needs and advocacy programs. With the theme “Sustained Partnership, Sustained Economic Growth,” the event will be held on Tuesday, 27 September 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Assembly Hall, BSP Naga Branch, Roxas Avenue, Naga City. Monetary Board Member Juan D. De Zuñiga, Jr. will lead in honoring this year’s awardees and stakeholders.
The BSP will give eight awards to outstanding partners: for the Information Support category—two for the Business Expectations Survey (BES), and one for Sources of Information for the Report on Regional Economic Developments; and for the Advocacy Support category—three 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 given to the BES respondents selected from among the country’s top corporations in Region V 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 V. Meanwhile, the Outstanding Regional Partner in Currency Programs will be given to the agency or institution that supported the BSP’s currency programs and advocacies in Region V such as the Coin Recirculation and the Demonetization of the New Design Series. Lastly, the Outstanding Regional Partner for Implementing BSP Advocacy on the Conduct of Public Information Campaigns will be awarded to the agency or institution that has supported the BSP’s public information campaigns in Region V.
This occasion is the last of the BSP’s regional stakeholders’ events which were held from July to September 2016 in 12 areas outside the National Capital Region 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, resulting in more efficient and effective means of information gathering and conduct of advocacy campaigns to achieve the BSP’s ultimate goal of safeguarding price stability and promoting a healthy financial system as well as ensuring an efficient payments and settlement system in the country.
