The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) led by Governor Rafael B. Buenaventura and members of the Monetary Board and around 200 executives from the nation's top corporations who are the respondents to the BUSINESS EXPECTATIONS SURVEY (BES) will hold an annual meeting at 10:00 AM on Friday, July 4, 2003, at the Reception Hall of the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC). The meeting will identify measures that would enhance the quality of BSP's quarterly BES.
The survey solicits perceptions of business and industry executives on short term prospects of the economy to provide the Monetary Board (BSP's policy-making body), and the market in general with indicators on the current and prospective business outlook. It covers all the major economic sectors, namely: industry, construction, wholesale and retail trade and other services.
The meeting will be held a day after the BSP starts its month-long celebration of its 10th anniversary.
