PIDS Book 2017-02: Building Inclusive Economies, Building a Better World: A Look at the APEC 2015 Priority Areas (Volume II)

The Department of Foreign Affairs, as chair of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) 2015 National Organizing Council Committee on Host Economy Priorities and as APEC National Secretariat, commissioned the Philippine Institute for Development Studies, through the Philippine APEC Study Center Network, to undertake research on the identified priority areas of APEC 2015 in order to gather expert analyses and insights that can serve as inputs to the various discussions during the summit as well as help advocate domestic reforms in the longer term.

This two-volume publication consists of policy papers written under the Research Project APEC 2015. The project explores the four priority areas of APEC 2015, namely, enhancing regional economic integration, fostering small and medium enterprises' (SMEs) participation in the regional and global economy, investing in human capital development, and building sustainable and resilient communities. Volume 2 focuses on fostering SMEs' participation in the regional and global economy, and building sustainable and resilient communities. It is made up of papers that tackle mainstreaming of SMEs, social enterprises and employment, women's participation in the economy, food security, SMEs' resilience to natural disasters, and social protection.
