Dr. Antoinette Raquiza, Associate Professor at the UP Asian Center and Convenor of the UP CIDS Political Economy Program, writes about the implications of the collapse of Subic-based shipbuilder Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Philippines, Inc., in a commentary that was published on the Philippine Daily Inquirer on 13 June 2019 and the Straits Times on 14 June 2019.
Citing the proposals given during a policy dialogue entitled “Reimagining Hanjin: Economic and Security Prospects”, held at the UP CIDS on 07 May 2019, Dr. Raquiza discusses options for the former Hanjin shipyard and argues that the national government takes on the challenge of turning the bankrupt Subic facility into an asset for the country’s maritime industry and defense.
The said policy dialogue was organized by the UP CIDS Political Economy Program, together with the UP Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Development, UP College of Science, UP College of Engineering, and the Asia Pacific Pathways to Progress Foundation, Inc.
