BALANGA CITY, Bataan – The Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK) was honored twice by the provincial government of Bataan and the city government of Balanga for its valuable contribution to advancing local recovery and development amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The LANDBANK Balanga Branch ranked among the “Top 25 Highest Business Gross Sales for 2021” and for supporting economic resurgence in Balanga, while also bagging the “Top Performing Bank” award for the third straight year—earning it the prestigious distinction as a “Hall of Fame” awardee.

LANDBANK Balanga Branch Head Nenita C. Lopez received the recognitions during the 2022 Galing! Bataan Awards Night and 3rd Invest Balanga Awards Night, anchored on the theme, “Husay at Tatag ng Bataeño, Susi sa Maunlad na Pagnenegosyo” on 29 July 2022 at the Vista Mall-Bataan.

“LANDBANK remains at the frontlines in delivering accessible and unhampered banking and financial services to local communities, especially in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Together with our LGU partners, this forms part of our expanded mandate in serving the nation,” said LANDBANK President and CEO Cecilia C. Borromeo.

The awarding event was jointly organized by the City Economic and Investment Development Office (CEIDO) of Balanga and the Provincial Cooperative Enterprise and Development Office (PCEDO) that aims to celebrate the collaboration among local business communities.

Through the years, LANDBANK has grown into one of the leading universal banks in the country, while remaining faithful to its social mandate to promote inclusive and sustainable development.
