Thus, in making it a more potent tool for central bank communication, we also optimize its potential for financial empowerment by incorporating in it our chatbot for consumer welfare,” said BSP Governor Benjamin E. Diokno.

“This recognition further motivates us to continue to reform, innovate, and transform the BSP’s operations and services in line with the dynamic and digital New Economy,” the Governor added.

The Central Banking awards committee noted that the BSP has significantly improved its website and has put members of the public front and center as part of the website redesign.

“Not only has the site been made responsive to the growing number of mobile visitors, but a greater emphasis on explaining the central bank’s core functions is also evident.
