40 Things (You Just Might Not Know) About PIDS (18/40): PIDS and APEC 

Since 1996, the PIDS has been leading the Philippine APEC Study Center Network (PASCN), established in the same year through Administrative Order 303, as the Philippines’ response to the APEC Leaders’ Education Initiative. The PASCN is one of the APEC Study Centers in APEC member-economies and is part of the APEC Study Centers Consortium.

The PASCN serves as an avenue for universities and research institutes in the country to work together not only on economic concerns but also on development reforms through the conduct of research and knowledge-sharing activities. Know more about PASCN here:

The Network is composed of the Asian Institute of Management, Ateneo de Manila University, Central Luzon State University, De La Salle University, Mindanao State University, Silliman University, University of Asia and the Pacific, University of San Carlos, University of the Philippines, Xavier University, Department of Foreign Affairs-Foreign Service Institute, and the PIDS as lead institution and secretariat.
