Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Governor Amando M. Tetangco, Jr. will lead bank officials in the conduct of activities under the BSP Economic and Financial Learning Program (BSP-EFLP) for Western Visayas here on Oct. 2-4. Gov. Tetangco will lead the Oct. 2 formal opening of the 6th leg of the program that will be attended by representatives of the banking sector, business and academic communities, officials from other government agencies, and members of the media.
Tetangco will be joined by BSP Deputy Governor Diwa C. Guinigundo.
The event will be highlighted by the re-launching of the Economic and Financial Learning Center (EFLC) of the BSP in its Iloilo Branch Office. The activity will start with the unveiling of the EFLC-Iloilo signage, followed by the blessing of the EFLC premises.
BSP said that already in operation since 2008, its EFLC in Iloilo has expanded its scope and services by upgrading its facilities and linking with the EFLC national network to ensure that all electronic resources in the EFLC in Manila are also available to Ilonggos.
These will be made available not only through conventional media like books and periodicals but also through technology-based interactive learning modules, informative video clips and even educational computer games. Researchers will also be able to browse the EFLC-Iloilo’s digitized library collection as well as its statistical database for information on economic issues that are of interest to them.
The BSP-EFLP consolidates the educational outreach activities of the BSP under one flagship program. It consists of a series of learning sessions and activities which aim to promote greater public awareness and understanding of essential economic and financial issues.
