The Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) is leading the nation in the annual observance of the 12th Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) this September. The DPRM is an annual celebration mandated by Presidential Proclamation 247 to elevate peoples awareness and appreciation of the value and importance of evidence-based planning and policymaking to nation-building.
During this years celebration, the PIDS will hold a seminar titled Addressing the Jobs Challenge toward Inclusive Growth on 23 September 2014, from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm (registration at 8:30 am), at Romulo Hall, Ground Floor of the NEDA sa Makati Bldg., 106 Amorsolo St., Legaspi Village, Makati City.

It is widely believed that this failure to attain greater inclusiveness is due to widespread joblessness among the poor and the economys inability to rapidly expand quality job opportunities.
