Twenty-nine (29) incoming and current directors from major rural banks graced and completed the 27th Seminar-Workshop on Corporate Governance and Risk Management held at the RBAP Conference Room in Intramuros last February 17-18, 2005.
The seminar-workshop simply aims to build a healthy and a competitive banking system. To achieve this, the rural bankers must learn to understand the presence of risks in every step of the decision-making process, and as such, they should not take these risks loosely. This further entails the provision of a sound judgment by the rural bankers through the principles of fairness, accountability and transparency.
The informative and lively Mr. Nestor Z. Flores, Vice President for Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation’s (PDIC) Human Resource Management Group, lectured on Corporate Governance. Ms. Irene D.L. Arroyo, East West Bank VP-Treasurer, delivered direct-to-the-point insights on Risk Management. BSP Examiners Mr. Rholyn R. Dayrit and Ms. Michelle J. Fernando, both Acting Bank Officers I of the Supervision and Examination Department IV of BSP, supervised the two-day seminar-workshop.
