BSP Enhances Its Consumer, Education Programs


In line with its 16th anniversary celebration, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) is launching an array of meaningful activities this month aimed at helping the ordinary Filipino make well-informed financial decisions.In charge of this month’s activities is the BSP’s Financial Consumer Affairs Group (FCAG), which was created three years ago to support the BSP’s Supervision and Examination Sector (SES) in ensuring the protection of depositors and investors and enabling the smooth and orderly functioning of the entire financial system.The declaration last year of the period from July 2009 to June 2010 as “Financial Consumer Empowerment Year” gave further impetus to the program.Ms. Ma.
