About Economic and Financial Literacy (EFL) Week
The observance of the EFL week every second week of November is mandated by Republic Act No. 10922, also known as the Economic and Financial Literacy Act, and is aimed towards developing a national consciousness on economic and financial literacy. The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) leads the annual celebration of the EFL week. The law mandates NEDA to plan, initiate, execute, and encourage knowledge-expanding activities on economic and financial literacy. These may be adopted by other national government agencies and instrumentalities, local government units (LGU), and government-owned-and-controlled corporations (GOCC), and educational institutions.
For this year’s theme, ISAPLANO: Bagong Philippine Development Plan para sa Patuloy na Pagsulong is in line with the ongoing preparations for the upcoming Philippine Development Plan 2023-2028.
