The Philippine Consulate General is once again inviting all Filipinos and Filipino-Americans to a webinar on the Philippine Bureau of Treasury’s 27th Tranche of Retail Treasury Bonds (RTB27).
The webinar aims to inform participants about RTBs as part of the Philippine government’s savings mobilization program designed to make government securities accessible to retail investors. RTB27 is a 5.5 year, low-risk, fixed-income investment, which provides interest on a quarterly basis. Proceeds from the issuance will be directed to emergency, recovery and resiliency funds, in support of the country's economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Resource speakers from the Bureau of Treasury, Development Bank of the Philippines and Landbank of the Philippines will discuss the RTBs, terms of the offering and procedures to invest in the present Tranche. The webinar will be held on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, at 5:30 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time) via Zoom. The Zoom Meeting is accessible through the following link: http://bit.ly/RTB27Roadshow.
The Department of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of the Philippines is spearheading the establishment of an Artist Database, which will contain the contact details (telephone/mobile number and or email address) of Filipino and Filipino-American artists based overseas in Southern California, Southern Nevada and Arizona.
The purpose of this Database is to make the information readily available to other Philippine Foreign Service Posts (i.e. Embassies or Consulates General) in various parts of the world that may be interested in organizing collaborative projects with you. Using the Database, Foreign Service Posts that may be in receipt of inquiries regarding Filipino artists based in other countries for purposes of establishing linkages for possible projects may also make the appropriate referrals.
For its part, the Philippine Consulate General in Los Angeles will utilize the Database to collaborate with participating artists in future projects with a view to raising the profile and visibility of Filipinos and Filipino-Americans with the American general public.
In this regard, interested artists are invited to provide the requested information by accomplishing the online Google form accessible through the following link:

The Consulate General conveys its appreciation in advance to all artists under its jurisdiction for their participation and looks forward to collaborating and generating useful collaborations for and with you through the Artist Database.
