Through research and analyses, state think-tank Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) will open its 23rd PIDS Corner at Palawan State University’s Main Library in Puerto Princesa City. On January 27, PIDS President Gilberto Llanto and other notable researchers will lead the opening. Does the Conditional Cash Transfer make any sense? How about JPEPA? Is there still hope for the manufacturing sector or can local industries compete when ASEAN-wide tariffs go down come 2015? PIDS Corner aims to provide reading and research materials on development-oriented topics, to students, teachers, researchers, policymakers, and decision-makers in the provinces. PIDS Corner’s objective is to make the findings and outputs of PIDS research more visible and accessible at the local and community levels, especially in locations where there is a dearth of such materials. The Corner has shelves containing various studies and publications produced by the Institute and its research partners, such as books, discussion papers, policy notes, journals, research papers, and newsletters. There have been 22 PIDS Corners across the country since the institute started this initiative in 2006. Joining Llanto are PSU President Jeter Sespeñe, PSU Vice President for Research and Extension Mike Pido, PIDS Director for Research Information Sheila Siar, PSU Director for Research Daphne Mallari, and PSU Librarian Lourdes Salvador.
