The Rural Bankers Association of the Philippines will hold its 64th Annual National Convention and General Membership Meeting on May 29-30, 2016 (Monday & Tuesday) at the Cordillera Convention Hall of Baguio Country Club, Country Club Road, Camp John Hay, Baguio City.

The theme for the Convention is, “RURAL BANKS: LEADING THE WAY FOR COUNTRYSIDE DEVELOPMENT AND INCLUSIVE GROWTH”. It focuses on rural banks as prime movers of rural economic development — driving growth and progress in the local communities by making quality and reliable financial products and services accessible for the underserved Filipinos. Rural banks continue to lead the path in advancing inclusive growth with their knowledge of the rural market and their unparallel passion to serve the needs of their clients. With the aforementioned, combined with good governance and institutionalization of sound management practices, the industry aims to deepen and widen its role in boosting local economies.

For this national gathering, we are inviting speakers and experts from various institutions to provide insights about the industry, discuss new business opportunities and facilitate a fruitful exchange of information among the participants.
