The members of the 2018 Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) Steering Committee convened at the PIDS office in Quezon City on May 29, 2018 to talk about the preparations and areas of collaboration for the DPRM.

Regular members of the DPRM steering committee include National Economic and Development Authority, Civil Service Commission, Philippine Information Agency, Presidential Management Staff, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, and the Department of the Interior and Local Government. This year, other national government agencies were added as members such as the Commission on Higher Education, Department of Labor and Employment, Department of Science and Technology, and Department of Trade and Industry.

Spearheaded by PIDS, the DPRM is an annual nationwide celebration held every September to promote awareness of the importance of policy research in the formulation of development policies, programs, and projects. Its main event is the Annual Public Policy Conference which gathers members of the government, academe, civil society, and the private sector to discuss various socioeconomic issues that need to be addressed.
