The Philippine Competition Commission joins the nation and the Philippine Institute For Development Studies in celebrating the 16th Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) with the theme “Harnessing the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Creating Our Future Today.”

The observance of the DPRM in September is intended to cultivate a strong culture of research and use of data and evidence among the country’s national and local decision-makers in policy-making and program planning.

As the country‘s leading think tank, the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) was designated as the overall coordinator of all the programs and activities of the DPRM.
