Financial Literacy is very low among Filipinos. Compared to our neighbors in Asia and the US, our country has the least number of people who are financially literate, and secure. Many would attribute this to a lack of knowledge or awareness, but the sad truth is that even though Financial Literacy advocates are everywhere and offering FREE Financial Literacy Seminars and talks across the country- even abroad for the OFWs, a lot of Filipinos still cannot be bothered to attend these seminars.
This is our second time to attend Money Talks UAE, and this by far has been the best and most interesting one we’ve been to. The conference was supposed to start at 1PM, but due to technical glitches it started at nearly 2PM, cutting the entire conference time short by almost two hours, and forcing the speakers to shorten their discussions a bit. It was not the full-day conference like the previous ones; a bit short on time, and cut even shorter due to technical difficulties, but definitely not short on information and new learnings from the excellent speakers.
