Asian Institute of Management-Rizalino S. Navarro Policy Center for Competitiveness (AIM-RSN PCC)

Established in 1996, the Asian Institute of Management – Rizalino S. Navarro Policy Center for Competitiveness (AIM-RSN PCC) is the public policy think tank and research arm of AIM.

Among its primary mandate is to respond to the emerging international economic trends and the demands of an increasingly integrated and competitive global trade and finance environment. Since its inception, it has carried out this mandate by producing cutting-edge policy and academic research, providing technical assistance to multilateral organizations and actors from the public and private sectors, and hosting evidence-based policy discussions in support of the long-term growth and development of the Philippines and the Asian region.

Although the AIM-RSN PCC remains engaged in other forms of development, policy, and economic research, its renaming in 2015 prompted a shift in focus toward building national competitiveness and promoting shared prosperity. Under this competitiveness framework, it carries out a dynamic research agenda, covering a wide array of topics and affecting industries and people from all walks of life. It specifically works under the premise that competitiveness, by itself, is not an end but a means to achieve increased productivity and shared prosperity. In turn, competitiveness stands on three pillars, namely, policies, institutions, and conditions of factors of production.
