The Philippine Consulate General in Hong Kong and the Bureau of the Treasury (BTr) of the Philippines jointly organized a webinar on “Premyo Bonds 2” (PB 2) held on 08 November 2020, for the benefit of the Overseas Filipinos (OFs) in Hong Kong.
The webinar aimed to promote financial literacy to OFs in Hong Kong by providing a comprehensive discussion on PB 2 in order to encourage the OFs to earn by investing in a secured, convenient, and affordable low-risk investment program offered by the Philippine Government, such as PB 2.
In his special message, Philippine Consul General to Hong Kong Raly L. Tejada stated that the Consulate supports the initiative of the Philippine Government, through the BTr’s Premyo Bonds 2 project, in providing the OFs with an opportunity to invest and generate income with their hard-earned money while at the same time helping the government. He also emphasized the importance of the availability of other income sources, such as retail investment programs, for long-term financial sustainability of OFs abroad.
A total of 540 participants registered in the PB 2 webinar. The virtual event was also streamed live through the Consulate’s official Facebook page.
