As an annual commemoration, the Philippine Competition Commission joins the nation and the Philippine Institute For Development Studies in celebrating the 18th Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) from September 1-30 with the theme “Bouncing Back Together: Innovating Governance for the New Normal.”

The PCC fully supports the observance of the DPRM in its bid to cultivate a strong culture of research and evidence-based policy-making and program planning among policy-makers and leaders across the public sector.

The theme resonates with the country’s push for innovative governance amid the pandemic and takes on the challenge for every agency towards embracing the new normal and contributing to economic recovery.
