Join us on December 11, 2023, from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM at the EDSA Shangri-La, Manila, in a knowledge-sharing session organized by the Philippine APEC Study Center Network (PASCN) and the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS).

Titled “Advancing Sustainable Futures in the APEC Region through Research and Development”, this event is part of the 2023 PASCN Planning Workshop that aims to gather PASCN members to review the network’s progress and develop plans and strategies moving forward. The session will showcase insightful presentations addressing both pivotal and emerging challenges in the Philippines and the APEC region amid an accelerating regional economic integration. The discussion offers a strategic focal point for think tanks and academics to strengthen their research efforts through collaborations and partnerships.

PASCN was established in 1996 through Administrative Order 303 as the Philippines’ response to the APEC Leaders’ Education Initiative, which aims to develop regional cooperation among higher education and research institutions in the APEC region. PASCN creates an avenue for universities and research institutions in the country to work together not only on issues pertaining to APEC but also on development reforms.

Onsite participation is by invitation only, but interested online participants may tune in to the PIDS and SERP-P Facebook pages for the livestream.
