AR 2006: PIDS Annual Report 2006

2006 marked a new paradigm in the Institute`s strategy toward development approach in the country. PIDS departs from the conventional method of a centralized modality for development to a bottoms-up approach in a decentralized strategy toward Philippine development. Thus, in the succeeding years, the Institute would try to focus on local government development in unison with the usual macroeconomic studies that it normally produces. The idea is to possibly bridge local government development efforts with those of the national as well as international economic trends. This year, PIDS also embarked on its latest knowledge-sharing strategy of setting up PIDS Corners in provincial public libraries and college/university-based libraries outside of Metro Manila in order to make PIDS research outputs more visible and easily accessible to the public, especially in areas far from the metropolis.
