The "Be up to SPeed on BSP" information campaign will cover recent economic developments and the role of the BSP in the economy, with emphasis on the three pillars of central banking, i.e., price stability, financial stability and efficient payments and settlements system. Two sessions will be conducted: one for professionals (including representatives from government agencies, business sector, and banking community), and another for students and members of the academe.
The "Paghahanda sa Kinabukasan" Financial Learning Campaign for Overseas Filipinos and their Beneficiaries (FLC-OF) aims to educate participants on the importance of using remittances to build up savings and directing these into investments in financial products and business ventures. Through this learning advocacy, the BSP hopes to help overseas Filipinos and their beneficiaries achieve financial security, bring them into the fold of the formal financial system, and enable them to participate more meaningfully in the country's economic development. Officials from the BSP, as well as from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), will give briefings on topics such as financial planning, investment, and business opportunities.
Meanwhile, the Financial Education Expo offers various financial education activities for students, professionals and others from the public and private sectors. It features learning booths with audio-visual presentations, graphic displays and interactive activities that will help participants become self-reliant in promoting their financial welfare. Two separate sessions of the Financial Empowerment Course, which is an integral part of the Expo, will also be conducted for students and members of the workforce. The learning sessions will present the importance of financial education, the Philippine financial system, basics of budgeting, saving, investing and borrowing, financial planning for life-cycle events, and credit card awareness.
