For the second year in a row, the Philippine Insurers and Reinsurers Association (PIRA) is participating in the Financial Education Expo of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) which opened today at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
PIRA has been tapped by the BSP as one of its partners in promoting financial literacy – particularly insurance literacy – among Filipinos.
As a partner, PIRA has a booth at the FinEd Expo where participants can obtain materials in promoting insurance to their constituency.
PIRA General Manager Roger Concepcion said it is an honor for the association to partner with the BSP. “We believe in the importance of financial literacy and we in PIRA are doing our part in promoting it through our various advocacies,” he said.
The two-day FinEd Expo offers various financial education activities. It aims to instill awareness about the availability and accessibility of financial education programs to all Filipinos, increase personal financial consciousness on the values and benefits of being financially empowered, and orient the public about available financial tools that can help in the promotion of their financial well-being.
The expo is a project handled by the BSP’s Financial Consumer Protection Department (FCPD) with the working sector, students and members of the academe as its target participants.
