BSP cites media’s role in bringing CB closer to Pinoys


THE Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) emphasized the vital role of the media in achieving its strategic goal of making the BSP more accessible to a greater majority of Filipinos.

“We count on you to help us bring the BSP closer to the people. As our allies in this pursuit, we cannot overemphasize the crucial role of the media in our economic recovery and development plan,” BSP Governor Benjamin E. Diokno said during the recently concluded Media Lectures for members of the Northern Luzon press.

The 2-day virtual-learning session tackled economic updates in North Luzon and the rest of the country, recent developments and trends in the digital payments space; proper handling of Philippine currencies, and BSP’s gold operations.

The BSP Governor underscored that in the time of a public health crisis, the media is a source of critical information.

“Through media, government can get a clear picture of what is happening on the ground, enabling the development of sound economic policies,” Diokno explained.

Beyond day-to-day economic and business reportage, the Governor encouraged members of the media to help put context to these statistics and explain how they translate into a better quality of life for Filipinos.

“As we make our way towards a technologically-driven, inclusive, and sustainable post-Covid-19 economy, let us work together in bringing the BSP closer to the people we both serve—the Filipino people,” Diokno said.
