UPSE turns over Public Policy Journal to Ayala Corp

The UP School of Economics (UPSE) presented the latest double-volume issue of the Public Policy Journal (PPJ) to the Ayala Corporation in a turnover ceremony held at UPSE Auditorium on Monday, April 24, 2017.

The double-volume issue of the PPJ, the official journal of the UP Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UPCIDS), is a compilation of papers presented in the Ayala Corporation–University of the Philippines School of Economics Economic Forums from 2014 to 2016. The issue features timely and insightful research on federalism and decentralization, tax reform, competition and regulation, and trade and agrarian reform.

Hosted by Prof. Joseph Capuno, one of the issue editors, the program began with a message from Prof. Emmanuel de Dios who provided a brief background of the UPSE-Ayala Corporation partnership. Prof. Orville Solon, current dean of UPSE and one of the authors in the issue, officially handed over of the publications with a message that highlighted the endeavor as a “public-private engagement that actually works.” In turn, the Ayala Corporation, represented by Managing Director John Philip Orbeta, received the PPJ and in a message hoped that the publication aids key decision makers in policymaking processes. The program ended with a photo opportunity and musical numbers from Tony Lambino, Ayala Corporation’s Head of Public Policy Unit, and Popo Suanes of the UPSE Alumni Association.

UPSE faculty, staff, alumni, and students, representatives from Ayala Corporation, and Dr. Edna Co and the publications unit from UPCIDS attended the ceremony.
