AQD joins BSP’s financial literacy campaign for OFWs

What other ventures are available for investments from OFWs?

Dr. Clarissa Marte, head of AQD's Technology Verification and Demonstration Division, and other concerned agencies presented what they have to offer under the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas' Financial Literacy Campaign (FLC) for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and their beneficiaries last January 22-23 in the provinces of Iloilo and Aklan.

The activity aims to promote savings and investments among OFWs and their beneficiaries by informing them of alternative opportunities of remittances, such as savings, investments in financial instruments, and other small and micro-business ventures.

Dr. Marte presented aquaculture-based business opportunities, wherein she highlighted AQD's ABOT AquaNegosyo packages.

The conduct of FLCs in places where most marginalized OFWs come from was strongly encouraged by Pres. Gloria Arroyo.

Among the provinces identified were those in the Visayas region, particularly Iloilo, Capiz and Aklan.
