Today representatives of 23 Filipino organisations gathered in Cebu City (PH) for the workshop "banks, finance and fairness: how civil society can promote responsible investment'. The workshop has been organised by Fair Finance Guide International, in collaboration with Oxfam Philippines, IDEALS and Profundo. The goal of the workshop was to assist Filipino civil society to increase their understanding of how the finance sector operates and the role of responsible investment policies in the finance sector.
Egad Ligon from IDEALS: "most Filipino CSO's have limited knowledge on how banks operate. This is the first initiative specifically focussing on this sector and it is very welcomed by CSO's to understand how banks impact the life of Filipino's".
