Open for Business, the online business program of Eagle Broadcasting Corporation (EBC) will be tackling the topic “Financial Inclusion” on its August 18 episode that will showcase the insights of Mr. Catalino S. Abacan, President and CEO of CitySavings.


Open for Business focuses on business, financial and economic news and headlines in the Philippines and in key markets around the world.  It also highlights the insights of CEOs and key industry leaders in the fields of business, economy, finance and technology.

According to the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), financial inclusion is a state wherein there is effective access to a wide range of financial services for all.

“These products and services must be appropriately designed, of good quality and relevant to benefit the person accessing the said service,” the BSP website said.

Mr. Abacan’s expertise in the subject is anticipated to provide information on the available financial services to markets that are traditionally underserved or unserved.

The UnionBank annual report states that CitySavings “has given over 300,000 clients access to financial services, affecting countless Filipino lives by enabling its customers to purchase family needs, start small businesses, build their homes and fund their children’s education.”

Open for Business is aired on eaglenewslive.com, the video streaming and mobile broadcasting site of EBC.  The site also features content from EBC’s TV, radio and online platforms.  It also appears on the FB live video of eaglenews.ph.
