About the EFLW 2019


The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) through Republic Act No. 10922 leads the celebration of the Economic and Financial Literacy Week, which is set every second week of November (November 4-8, 2019) annually.

This year’s theme, “Our planet’s health, the future’s wealth” calls for concerted efforts towards building an inclusive and sustainable future for our planet through harmonizing environmental protection, social inclusion, and economic growth. We need to rethink our consumption and production practices in our pursuit of sustainable development. There is an urgent need to find ways to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs and pursue their aspirations.

Everyone is encouraged to participate in the online campaign thread using the hashtags #WalangSayang and #EFL2019.
