“Thank you for inviting us to the first ever BE F.I.T. Seminar. It was great meeting up again with Mr. Bansan and getting to know KAMPI and other partners who are taking time and effort to reach out to the Filipinos abroad for the financial literacy campaign. This is truly laudable and beneficial. It is great to be part of TEAM PHILIPPINES with I-REMIT, KAMPI and other companies and stakeholders as a vital partner of the Philippine Embassy and Philippine Consulate.
Keep up the outstanding work. Be assured of our continuing support and cooperation. Please check our website and Facebook account and the Department of Foreign Affairs website for the press release on the Seminar. GOD BLESS!”
