The Philippine 2019 economic storylines are far from cupcakes and rainbows, but, seeing through rose-colored glasses, we are still one of the alpha dogs in the Asian continent. The sudden flip of headlines from the skyrocketing inflation to a cooling general price level, the premature braggadocio about the Duterte’s massive infrastructure program which lately has met major cuts and delays and the immediate economic policies that reshape the landscape of our economic and financial circumstances are the major crucibles of the scene. With these dynamically-changing economic fortunes, displayed by numbers and graphs, the Filipino economic actors are the main characters. That saying, it is just befitting to aggrandize our awareness, involvedness, and capabilities in the financial and economic aspects. As we move and engage towards the “usapin” that gallantly unleashes “kwenta”, hitting our Ambisyon 2040 would be no phantasm at all.

After a fructuous launching of 1st EFLW Forum last 2018, the PUP Department of Economics and its prime organization Economics Research Society (EconRes) is set to lead again the Polytechnic University of the Philippines’s second Economic and Financial Literacy Forum titled, “Usapang May Kwenta: Pagpapalawak ng Kamalayan sa Pera at Ekonomiya”, in accordance with the annual celebration of Philippine Economic and Financial Literacy Week. The event will be held on December 13, 2019, from 8; 00 AM – 5:00 PM, at 4F Bulwagang Balagtas Ninoy Aquino Library and Learning Resources Center (NALLRC), PUP, A. Mabini Campus, Sta. Mesa, Manila and will be open to both PUP students and non-PUP students. This second EFLW forum chiefly targets to heighten one’s knowledge and awareness on the current trends and shifts in the Philippine economy, specifically that of inflation and social reforms, inculcate financial intellect and freedom to the youths and in the bigger picture, rekindle the essence of economic and financial literacy to economic actors and the country as a whole.

National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) is mandated by the Republic Act 10922 or “An Act Declaring the Second Week of November Every Year as Economic and Financial Literacy Week”, to lead in the nationwide observance of the Economic and Financial Literacy Week, together with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), Department of Finance (DOF) and Department of Budget and Management. 

The celebration perhaps is a little bit late. But to learn the ropes of economic and financial concepts is not confined only in the second week of November. For every challenge sprout at any given time and concurrently, there lie our unleashed “economic and financial kwenta.” 

Together, let us be economically and financially literate! Register here https://forms.gle/YRu7T6KYeMfxZSC7A
