Mr. Wilbert Sy of CLIMBS Life and General Insurance Cooperative also introduced their services that will benefit the cooperative sector. The heart of the Compliance Forum was discussed by Ms. Emerlinda Guillemer (Head-Supervision and Examination Section) as well as Mr. Gerard Paul Salinas (CDS II-SES). They presented the legal bases on the submission of Mandatory Reports, the content of the different reports like CAPR, Performance Audit Report, Social Audit Report, Audited Financial Statement and List of Officers Trainings.
