This regional event was part of a series of awareness-raising activities, policy dialogues, and seminars initiated by PIDS to promote deep and broad-based understanding of the socioeconomic implications of the FIRe. The forum was intended to serve as a venue where the government, business sector, and civil society of Central Visayas can engage in an open and evidence-based discussion on the prospects of the region in the era of FIRe and how it can take advantage of emerging technologies to further develop its economic potential and contribute to the attainment of AmBisyon Natin 2040.
